I've been using a small external drive as a Time Machine to hold a back up of a MacBook from before I upgraded it to Mountain Lion.


I want to keep this back up but  need the external drive for something else.


I thought I could copy the back up folder to my iMac but whenever I try to copy it my computer wants my password because "FINDER WANTS TO MAKE CHANGES".


Is it okay to proceed? Will copying the back up affect my iMac?
