How Can I Transfer Data From an Old Mac Hard Drive?

Episode 1789 (2:09:23)

David from Redondo Beach, CA
Paragon Software

David (the Laptop Elf)  is trying to get some data off a 2011 Macbook, which has a dying hard drive. He pulled the hard drive and now has to connect it to her new Windows computer and transfer the data. But the MacBook uses iPhoto, and it has a single file with all the images balled up together. Sort of. R/C the iPhoto data file, and you'll be able to open it as a folder. You'll then see all the original images and transfer them over with a simple drag and drop. Paragon Software has software that can show the data in Windows. Connect the drive up and then run that to see the data and get it off.
