OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migration Assistant Taking FOREVER To Transfer Data

May 17, 2012

Today I started a brand new MacBook Pro for the first time and followed the on-screen prompts to transfer data from an older Mac (MBP 2.16GHz Core2Duo running 10.6.8) via firewire. The procedure was different from the one I am accustomed to, which involves starting the old machine in target disc mode. This time, I was instructed to open Migration Assistant on the old MBP and select "from this Mac". This I did, whereupon it appeared that Migration Assistant on the new MBP established a connection with the old MBP, which was already connected to the new MBP with a Firewire cable. But once the transfer started, it progressed at a snail's pace. It started almost 5 hours ago and will very likely continue all night long. It occurred to me that the transfer is proceeding as though it were taking place over wi-fi.

Is it possible that OS X Lion took it upon itself to connect with the old MBP over wi-fi even though the two machines were wired together via Firewire? I do not recall having any opportunity to explicitly select Firewire as the transfer mode.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Migration Assistant - Data/content Files Isn't Recognizing The Old, Original Contents?

Mar 13, 2012

I had an Imac running Snow Leopard... I mistakenly(?) thought i could change Permissions by selecting "Everyone" from the startup volume HD icon's Permissions panel and in turn, chose "Apply to All Enclosed Files and Folders" option thinking this would allow all other computers on a small office network to have total free and clear no-security-required, file-sharing read/write- access to this Imac's contents. After doing this and attempting reboot, I couldn't get access to the OS  at all even after i ran DiskWarrior and DiskUtilities, so, wound up doing Archive/Install - but used an OS 10.5 disk because i (mistakenly)thought that my 10.6 Snow Leopard disk was only an Updater.  So after installing 10.5 again I ran the OS 10.63 disk's installer, bringing the new System Folder up to Snow Leopard. I'm up and running - most system software updates downloaded/done.  Problem is now this --  stuff like:  Email Clients,  Itunes, Browsers, any Apps  that had associated data/content files isn't recognizing the old, original contents that belonged to them - instead, these apps all

IMac (Intel) :: Transferred About 400 Gigs Of Data Using Migration Assistant But It Doesn't Show On Finder

Dec 10, 2014

I transferred about 400 gigs of data from my MacBook Pro to my new iMac using Migration Assistant, but can't find any of my data on Finder. I'm thinking that the data got transferred but not cataloged. Finder shows about 400 gigs of my hard drive being used, but the files it shows don't come anywhere close to 400 gigs. How can I find out what is really on the hard drive and how can I access my MacBook files I transferred?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migration Assistant Freezes?

Feb 19, 2012

I was attempting to use Migration Assistant to move files from my wife's old PC (Windows 7) to her MacBook Pro, which uses Lion. The first connection went fairly smoothly, but we were connecting over wifi so it moved very very very slowly. Also, I had neglected to turn off Windows update and that ended up crashing the transfer. I tried to restart the transfer today (after shutting down Windows Update, Firewall, and other stuff I could think of), but now the two computers won't speak to each other. Both computers show up as being on the network.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migration Assistant On MBP Not Recognizing Old Mac?

May 8, 2012

I have a new MBP and I'd like to migrate some of my account from my old Mac running Leopard. When I run Migration Assistant on the MBP it can seem to find the old Mac. They are connected via ethernet and a modem/router and I am able to see and login to the old Mac via Network Folder on the MBP. 

Is it possible to use Migration Assistant in this way. What alternatives do I have, obviously doing a TIme Machine isn't an option being Leopard on the old Mac. I could manual take Mail folde, iTunes folder r and Safari bookmarks and forget the rest but figured there's a way to get Migration Assistant to do this.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: PC To IMac - Migration Assistant Set Up Another User

Mar 25, 2012

Set up my 21.5" iMac last night, set up a new user "Rory" - then downloaded Migration Assistant on my PC to transfer files, music, pics, docs and my iMac has created "Rory1" since I've discovered I should've transfered docs across BEFORE I set up an initial user! 

The only thing I'd set up on my original "Rory" mac account was downloading Flash Player and installing my email to 'Mail' - so I've hardly done a lot of configs. 

Can I just delete the original "Rory" profile and use the "Rory1" profile that the Mac set up? ( I realise the Mac has done this because my old Windows PC user name was obviously called "Rory" as well). 

Or, is it easier to try and get the files (transfered from the PC under 'Rory1') to the original Mac profile of "Rory". 

It's only 12 hours since I first went to set the my Mac up so as I said, I'm hardly in that much of a pickle yet - am I?!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Use Migration Assistant To Transfer Files From Another Mac?

Jun 6, 2012

I have tried using the migration assistant. It will not go beyond my selecting a migration method - From another Mac. Nor am I able to use the system preferences file sharing options outlined on apple support. I am not permitted to select the internet sharing as instructed in step 3 (in issues with migration section)... so cannot proceed from there. Using the target option to transfer files isn't working either.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Setting Up New MacBook - Migration Assistant?

Jun 20, 2012

I've just purchased a new MacBook pro, and previously I had a windows PC so I'm new to Mac OS X, so please don't go using super technical vocab I've read through Apple's article explaining how to use the migration assistant, and it says that the mac will create a new user with the migrated data. So, do I need to make a temporary user, use the migration assistant, and then delete the original user I made first? Or could I make a user, use the assistant, and copy the data from the new user made by the assistant to the original one?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migration Assistant Copied Everything Even When Unchecked?

Jul 4, 2012

My Snow Leopard boot disk had 12 years of accumulated crud, and was running slowly.So I did a nice clean install of Lion on a fresh partition.Redid some configuring, like sudoers, Flash, Time machine interval to 4 hours, locate.updatedb, etc. Wanted my old "Location" info (about a dozin networks).Gave Migration assistant a try. Unchecked EVERYTHING except Network Settings: Perfect.Only 24 KB. Probably just a couple of .plist files.What could go wrong? I'm running from a non-admin account. It copied all the Users. It copied all the Applications.It copied all the root level cruft. My pristine boot drive is burried deeper in crap that the American Constitution.My backup is a day old, and I worked all day. Another half a day to undo this mess. Next time I will find the config file and copy it myself.But why did it do this?

OS X :: Restore Data In Address Book?

Jul 11, 2009

I've searched the forums but still can't find the answer I'm looking for. This morning, I tried something on my iPhone called MyPhone+ which syncs my contacts on my phone with my Facebook account. This was all well and good, until I realized that it overwrote all the address information. which then went to mobileme, and then overwrote everything on my mac. SO, I looked in Time Machine, and my address book is perfect as of 6:00 am this morning. I selected that point in time, and clicked the RESTORE button, but nothing changes. Is it not possible to restore the data in address book to a point in time from the Time Machine backups?

OS X Yosemite :: Why Setup Assistant And Migration Assistant Forcing To Copy Everything From Old Mac

Dec 2, 2014

I just bought a new Mac Mini (Late 2014, ships with Yosemite) to replace a defunct MacBook Pro (Late 2008, last ran 10.8.5).  I have a local administrative user account and some server and network data that I want to migrate from the latest Time Machine backup of the MacBook Pro to the Mini.  I don't want to copy anything else to the Mini.  Neither Setup Assistant nor Migration Assistant will let me deselect anything though.  All the check boxes are greyed out.  Clicking on them does not uncheck them.  This forces me to copy everything from the Time Machine backup to the Mini.  Then the Mini won't restart.   It won't even boot into safe mode.  It just gets stuck in a reboot-loop until I enter recovery mode, wipe the system drive, and reinstall Yosemite.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Upgrading To New MBP / Time Machine Or Migration Assistant?

Mar 17, 2012

I'm getting a new (late 2011) MacBook Pro next week and I'm wondering which is the best method to move files to the new computer - from a Time Machine backup or Migratiion Assistant (or whatever it's called). I have an "original" MBP circa February 2006 which is running Snow Leopard (most of you might know that my current model cannot use Lion). When I bought my current MBP, I had a PowerBook G4 and used Migration Assistant with no problems but now, with Time Machine, I'm wondering if I will get a 'better' migration of files.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migration Assistant Does Not See The Time Machine Disk

Mar 27, 2012

I had an issue with my hard disk on my imac in which I had to re-format and reinstall the OS. Since 10.7 is not available as a "rescue reinstall disk", I had to reinstall 10.6. When that finished, the install asked if I would like to transfer my stuff from Time Machine. I said "yes". Unfortunately, my time machine disk does not show up! Migration Assistant thinks my "macintosh HD" system disk is the only disk available as the time machine backup. So I skipped migration. I went ahead and did all of the OS upgrades to get back to 10.7.3. I re-connected all external disks (I have 4-the time machine disk included) and tried migration assistant again. The only disk migration assistant still thinks is available as the time machine backup is the macintosh HD system disk, not the one called "Time Machine Backup". Time machine backup is a western digital 2TB usb 2.0 disk.  I decided this morning to re-do everything again (since I still could not get my data back).the same thing is happening! Migration Assistant thinks that the macintosh HD is the time machine disk and does not see any others - even though the disk is there and mounted!
