1. Connect the disk to the Mac mini, open System Preferences > Time Machine and make a backup
2. When it ends, connect it to your MacBook Air, open Migration Assistant and move the files to the Mac

I have used the external for backup for the mac mini. It already has all of the data on it.
I am trying to take data from the external and put it on my macbook air.
This is what the guy at the Apple Store told me to do. He said I could just drag and drop any of the data in this manner. I'm confused by your reply. Do I just not understand your explaination?

If you did a backup in Time Machine, open Migration Assistant to move your data. If you copied your data to the external disk, connect the external drive and copy the files to the MacBook Air

Okay. This is all new to me and I feel a bit dumb and overwhelmed, but I'm sort of good at figuring things out, so I'll give this a go. I just want to get my important data onto my macbook air before I erase the mac mini and sell the darn thing. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.
