Hey can anyone tell my how I can copy the contents of my dad's LaCie portable hard drive onto my mac laptop. Basically i thought it was as simple a a click and drag into a new folder. However, every time i try this it tells me the action cant be completed as i am copying both non-backup and backup files. Then i went on to try just copying the ones that say backup after the name but the same problem occurred. How can i do it?

Hi Nick welcome to the Forum. First we need more info - which machine put the files onto the La Cie and which OS are you using on the MacBook? Are you the only User on the MacBook? What app did the back up that u refer to?
