I need to transfer the data from an SSD containing my Time Machine Backup to my current MacBook Pro. I don't want to restore the backup or settings.
When I try to copy the
Backups.backupdb it says that the volume is the wrong format for the backup. I also tried using one a method from the terminal when I was searching for people with similar problems but that didn't work in my case. I've also tried to copy files individually but it is taking a lot of time to transfer.
Edit: The method I used on the terminal is below. I will try it again and post a link to a screenshot soon. The files I want to copy are just regular image files, some project files and structure, and a couple of video files no bigger than a GB. Roughly everything is under 180GB, but I'd be happy to take only the important stuff which should be well below 90GB.
sudo -s rsync -avhW --progress /Volumes/New/ Volume/Backups.backupdb /Users/Desktop/SomeFolder
