How do I switch WD drive to another computer and recover old files

So my last computer died, but I have all the information and files backed up on my 1T My Book. I have a netbook (acer aspireone) that i would like to load the files to, but also be able to back up the files that are on it, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it to back-up my files (There is especially one that I really need backed up because I paid $100 for it for class). Any help would be greatly appreciated.



You did not specify what software you used to backup your old computer.  Depending of the backup sotware you may be able to transfer your files manually, or exclusively with the software.

Not too sure what you mean. Sorry. It was Windows 7 though. Does that help?
