I bought a macbook air. When I connect an old hard drive to it, I am able to open files, but unable to do certain functions such copying or deleting files or folders. I heard I should be able to get an App that will allow me to do this, but I have been unable to find one. Can I get direction as to where I can get an App to do this.
