My Passport 2TB External


Just bought the passport 2TB external and using for my mac desktop. I accidentally erased/reformatted the external and now there are no files on the external and thus cannot use for backup. How do I get all of the necessary files back onto the external?

I’m running El Capitan v10.11.6


Hello, Rho

Well as you are a Macintosh “El Capitan v10.11.6” user there is no need of using any software for the backup purpose, Apple does have there own feature to backup the data on the external hard drive i.e time machine. Given below link is useful for you.

How to use time machine.

Moreover, if you wish to download the files that have been deleted accidentally then you can refer to the given link and you can also download the files from there.


Try the free version of EaseUS Data Recovery. If you think it fit what you need then I suggest buying the full version. Good luck on recovering your data.
