You're problem is a bit unclear. Are you saying you transferred your old files to an external hard drive but now you can't get the files from the external to your new internal hard drive?


yes that is what I meant. I would like to transfer all my old files to the new internal drive from the external drive where they are all saved.

Restart with your external drive plugged in. Go to Applications > Utilities > Migration Assistant and select the type of files you want to move and do it.
