I recently bought a new Mac laptop and transfered some files to it via data migration.

 

Now I just want to locate some old photos on my backup drive.

 

The dirve was connected to my old Mac, then I chose to transfer the backup drive to my new Mac laptop.

 

Now I cannot see/access the files from before I connected the new Mac.

 

Why is this? Aren't all and any of the files still on the backup drive?

 

Please help!

Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    Remember, we can't see your machine so you're going to need to explain things a bit more clearly.

     

    These old photos on a back up drive, are they involved in iPhoto is some way? Did you use an app to create a back up? Or just drag material over?

     

    The dirve was connected to my old Mac, then I chose to transfer the backup drive to my new Mac laptop.

     

    Apart from plugging the drive into the new machine, what does "transfer" mean?

     

    Regards
