Help Restoring My Book from PC to MacBook Pro

I have a 4 TB My Book to which I’ve backed up key files from PC. I would like to restore these to a new MacBook Pro. Once I restore, I believe I can erase, reformat, and partition into an ExFAT partition and an Apple Partition so that I can use Time Machine. I am totally new to Mac, but from what I read this seems right.

How can I do this restore?


Hello DaBrownCO,

Restoring the files depends on what software you used to backup the files. If you used the WD Smartware or WD Backup software, then you can manually move the files from the drive to the Mac. Please refer to the link below:
