I have formatted my MacBook Pro, but before that, I copied all the files inside my MacBook Pro HDD to external hard drive.
When I was doing that I found 2 drives. The First Drive is Mac - Data and the Second Drive is Mac. both of them contained the same files, just the first ( Mac - Data ) is 190 GB and the second ( Mac ) is 12 GB and I copied only Mac - Data since I can see all the files inside it and I'm sure its main drive I needed contains the files and folders.
I don't know what are the differences.
Now I formatted the MacBook Pro and I want to restore all the files, apps, settings, files location, etc as before the formatting. Is there any way I can do it without having to do all of this manually?
Can I use Time Machine to do the restore from my external drive? I did not use Time Machine to create a backup, I just copied and pasted files to an external drive.
I want everything back as before, is there any possible way ?
