Migrating Information from Mac to Mac

Posted in Did you Know? on July 5, 2010 by

The process of migrating information from one computer to another can often be an arduous task. However, in Mac OS X moving your information to a new machine couldn’t be easier.
To begin the process, connect both Macs together with either a FireWire or Ethernet cable. On the “old” machine (the machine with information to be copied), navigate to Utilities – Migration Assistant.
Open the Migration Assistant and follow the on-screen prompts. The prompts will dictate which applications, settings and files will be copied to the new machine. Once the appropriate prompts are selected, the migration assistant will take over. The entire process will take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the amount of information to be copied and the speed of the connection.
It’s that easy! If you are interested in additional Mac tips, please attend Make the Most of Your Mac.
