I recently stumbled across an old external HDD from my college days. On it are pictures, files, etc. that I have not seen in a long time! However, back then, I was not as tech savvy or cautious when it comes to virus’ and things like that. It would travel between school computers, friends’ computers and my own. I used Napster a lot back then and downloaded a lot of files without thinking of the dangers! I now want to download my old photos and files onto my mac but am wondering what the best way to go about it is? Is there some virus scanner built into macOS? Or can you recommend any 3rd party software or best practices in general when approaching this situation?
Any tips would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
