    How Do I Restore From TimeMachine?
    Before my old MacBook Pro died on December 26, I always did daily backups in TimeMachine. Now, I would like to access the backups (it's all on a G-Drive) and restore selected files to my new McBook Pro (see signature).

    How do I do this?

    Thanks.

    ^^Perfect! I was able to find everything on my backup drive and click-and-drag it all over to the new device. Thanks mucho.
