Need help recovering backuped files after hard drive wipe

Hi, I was just wondering if someone could walk me through the process of putting all the files backup up on my WD Drive bak onto my laptop. I recently had to have the hard drive on my laptop wiped and know I am trying to download all my files again.

I am assuming I have to start be reinstalling the software on my laptop, but it will not let me install it since the green light is flashing on the hard drive. How I can I get this to stop  (I already tried unplugging and plugging it back in again)?

Any help someonw could offer would be appreciated since I don’t really know to much about the WD drive myself.

You can restore the files with or without the software

what software did you use?

Try going to the drive and drag and drop the files or go to the partition that holds the files and copy them
