Hi can anyone advise the simplest way to transfer random files from a now removed HDD to a replacement SSD in an Imac Running High Sierra

The old HDD has a powered connector that allows it to run indeoendantly and be connected to the mac externally, but does not seem to be recognised when the Imac has booted up as per norm with the new internal SSD?

Any simple direction would be great.

Currently connected via this.


Thanks kindly

That SATA adapter does not seem to have an external power source and I take it that it gets all its power from the Mac via USB. Is your hard drive a 3.5" or 2.5" form factor. The smaller (2.5") drives can usually work fine from the SATA connector, but larger 3.5" drives may not.
