iMac 27" HD Data Restore

Hi

Recently my HD died and I've had it replaced - all good!

Now for bringing the data back into the replaced HD. I've been using Time Machine to automatically back up data on an external drive, there is a back up folder with many files with time stamps. When I load time machine and try and go back to recover this data it doesn't recognize my external drive.

How do I get the data only from the external drive back onto my new drive?

It's probably very obvious to lots of you, but it's not to me.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

You have to restore the data via Migration Assistant.

Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities.

or restore manually with the "latest backup" alias.
