    • If you are restoring from your "P" drive, select "This PC" from the left side of the File Explorer window and your "P" drive will be an option to select.
    • If you are restoring from Google Drive, open a browser and login to your Google Drive account.

  8. Open a new File Explorer window.

  9. Make one window your destination and the other window the source you are importing data from.

  10. Drag one folder at a time from the source window to the destination you choose.
    1. Remember, this PC does not have enough storage for all of your data. Please try to utilize Google Drive storage as much as possible for storing your data.
    2. It's a good idea to keep your data in Google Drive, import it when you need to use it, then put it back in Google Drive when you are finished.
