OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine HD Not Listed When Try To Migrate?

Apr 11, 2012

I have suddenly had constant lockup trouble with my 13"MBP under Lion (latest version 10.x).  So I did a complete re-install, including using Disk Utility to erase HD, then Lion.  I have complete Time Machine Backups, however Lion will NOT list my TM external HD when migrating my data (both at initial startup and using the utility)!  Why not?  It is CLEARLY listed on my desktop, so I know it's mounted. I don't have to re-install every program, and info manually?

OS X :: Can Use Time Machine To Migrate Everything From One Macbook Pro To My New One

Feb 24, 2009

I am thinking of selling my macbook pro (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz) and buying a new one. I really don't want to load all of my software and settings, etc. and was wondering if I could just use my time machine backup for the new machine to basically pick up where I left off with the previous machine on the new machine?

OS X :: Migrate Time Machine Backup - Stored On Another Mac?

Mar 18, 2009

I recently sold my mini and my ministack, but before i did i took the last 4 time machine backups. I stored this image on my gf's imac, in hopes that when i got my new macbook i could restore everything i had on the mini onto the macbook. So, on her computer, i have xxxxx.sparseimage, i enabled sharing on her computer through a local network, and shared it. When i get on the network, i can drag the file to the desktop, go in and see all my stuff. Ive tried everything through the network to try and migrate it, with migration tool, but it'll just start migrating her computer. i have another external HDD, am i going to have to format it and move the backup to it, then from it to my macbook? can i get a bridged usb-usb cable and just yank it off her computer? does anyone know what im talking about?

OS X :: Using Time Machine To Migrate Date Between Macs?

Apr 9, 2009

I'm still fairly new to the Mac world. I know I wouldn't want to take an Windows image of a hard drive from a dell laptop and restore it to an Hp desktop or any mis-matching like that due to hardware and driver differences. But I was wondering if it is OK to use my time machine backups of my Macbook Air and restore that to an iMac that is on its way. I am actually selling the Macbook Air once I have the iMac set up and running smooth. I could easily copy my documents, pictures, etc. And I could export my bookmarks and settings with Firefox, but I would prefer to not have reinstall all the apps I have, all the plugins in Firefox, and all the settings I have the way I like in OS X.

So I am looking for advice on the best method for migration to a different computer. Is Time Machine my best bet?

OS X :: Migrate Entire Time Machine Capsule To New Mac?

Apr 28, 2010

I've got my external hard drive set up with Time Machine on my 13" MBP w/ Snow Leopard and I need to upgrade the laptop already for my school courses (awesome ). When I get my new MBP, is it possible to plug in the hard drive with my previous backups and migrate everything to the new Mac? Will it appear as if my computer has just grown in size overnight, or do I need to manually transfer everything over?

The hard drive is USB, I read somewhere about transferring all the files via Firewire but not USB, I'm guessing that's because of the backwards control you have with Firewire. (Not to mention slightly faster data rate).

OS X :: Save Time Machine Backup But Not Migrate To New Computer?

Mar 10, 2010

I currently have a 2007 MB, which I'm upgrading to either a MBP or MBA as soon as the new ones drop. I have a question I have my MB backed up with time machine to an external HDD, how can I save all my current info (pictures/files/documents) that are backed up on the external and use the new machine as a clean slate? How would I access say the pictures from the old machine once I start using the new one, ( the old machine itself will be sold) so I'll just have the backed up info do I need to do some other type of "save" before I sell the old machine?

MacBook :: Time Machine + New Hard Drive - Color Profiles Not Migrate

Aug 20, 2009

today I bought a 7200rpm 500gb seagate hard drive. The installation went great. reinstall of osx went great. The computer is up and running but at osx 10.5.5 and I noticed my color profiles have not migrated over so I'm guessing other things haven't either... My AT&T card is also encountering a "fatal error" while trying to connect so I can't even get online to try to update. What went wrong? What should I do? I did a TM bck up right before the HD swap.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Enter The Time Machine When Press The Time Machine Icon

I cannot enter the time machine when I press the time machine icon. I press and nothing happens, so I'm not sure even if it is backing up at this point. When i go to my Tme Capsule it has the folder there for back-ups and the most recent, but no access from the icon.

MacBook Pro :: How To Migrate Files From New Machine

I bought a new macbook pro and I'm planning the migration of files to the new machine.  What is the best method, with the old pro having firewire and the new one having thunderbolt? I have a lot of files, so I want it to be as speedy as possible. Maybe the firewire to thunderbolt adapter?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Deleting Time Machine Folder For One Machine?

May 27, 2012

Yesterday I used Migration Assistant to recover the contents of a failed MacBook Pro (Snow Leopard) from a Time Machine backup to a new MacBook Air (10.7.4). Using the same external disk for backups, I now have a folder for both the old and new machines in 


The instructions here 


explain how to reconnect time machine to the old machine's backups. Once I've done this and checked that I can access the old backups, can I simply delete the new machine folder to save space?

OS X Mountain Lion :: Time Machine Can't Complete Backup To Time Capsule

Jun 19, 2014

MacBook Pro mid-2012, 8GB RAM, 750GB hard drive, Mac OS X 10.8.5

One Time Capsule at home

One Time Capsule in vacation home 

MBP backs up everything on internal hard drive to Time Capsule at home, where we live during summer and spring. When moving to vacation home in fall and winter, MBP backs up everything to Time Capsule in vacation home. 

During the 6 months at each residence, the backups work great to the Time Capsule at that particular house. However, after some time (maybe a week?), Time Machine displays an error in Notification Center: "Time Machine can't complete backup to Home Time Capsule" (when in vacation home) or "Time Machine can't complete backup to Vacation Time Capsule" (when at home). 

It's obvious that this occurs because Time Machine was set to back up to 2 Time Capsules and expects both of them to be reachable. Is there a way to suppress these Time Machine errors for the time that we're away from one of the Time Capsules?

Intel Mac :: Time Machine Backups Taking Extremely Long Time Running Lion 10.7.4

Jul 2, 2012

I have an iMac running the latest version of Lion (10.7.4) and which I have upgraded to a one terabyte hard drive and full memory capability. I back up to a My Book 2 terabyte external hard drive using Time Machine. My iMac is often very sticky, though I've done most of the diagnostics I know of and preferences etc. are seemingly all OK and fcuk -fs gives a positive result! The Mac is often hard to wake from sleep and in particular seems to spend a lot of time backing up very-very slowly, with the result that it frustratingly seems to be backing up most of the time with the consequent effects on using other programs. Also the whole thing seems to grind to a halt after a hard days work with quite a few applications open. I'm wondering what can be causing this and what I can do to overcome this very frustrating and debilitating problem?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Does Not Work On Time Capsule?

May 20, 2012

I have updated to 10.7.4, and now Time Machine does not work on my Time Capsule.  I have erased all backups using the Airport Utility.  When I try to run Time Machine, the disk is mounted, files are calculated, backup starts, then stops, and no backup is done.  Also, no error messages.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time-machine - Complete Backup Every-time?

Jun 25, 2012

have a MacBook Pro 15" 10.7.4 which isn't working with TimeMachine any more When starting a backup, Time Machine tells me to backup 112kB (for example) .... an running and running, and after a short time "2kB from 112kB" ... and runnig and running and then "5kb from 112kB" and so on. The progress status is updating very slowly. 

The weired thing is: the ".inProgress" file on the external hard drive (tried FireWire and USB connection) is growing to 85GB (the total used space on the hard drive) while Time machine status tells me it has saved some kB. And every backup is running in that way. Instead of backing up only the difference, all files where backuped - although the status is displaying a few 100kB - which should be the right size to backup. 

- Repaired permissions > Same error

- Tried installing combo update > Same error

- Tried another external hard drive > Same error

- Tried cloning system to different hd > Same error

- excluded the Users home folder > Same error

- Interal hard drive speed > Over 70MB/s > OK

- External hard drive speed > Over 70 MB/s > OK 

So had to be something with the System itself.

Intel Mac :: Restore Lion OS From Lion Server Time Machine Backup?

May 3, 2012

I am running a Intel Imac 2008 clean install SL then Lion upgrade, followed by Lion Server install.I have multiple home macs, and intnded the server as a way to monitor and restrict kids internet use.In short, it has changes/screwed up multiple programs, and complicated home sharing issues considerably. Mail on the server machine has permission problems (cannot send mail, unable to sign), Spotlight in mail is non-functioning, finder spotlight searches are inconsistent, etc.I want to revert to plain old Lion.

I have done disk utility/verify disk and verified/repaired permissions, and have 'fiddled' (i'm not an expert) in the keychain/certificates areas, but I think the best solution is a clean install of Lion. When I backup to TIme Machine, is there a way to pull a 'Lion' version of my disk image back, and just not upgrade to Server? I understand I can disable Server and turn off applications in Server, but it doesn't fix my buggy machine. My options are to back up my 250GB of music, 100GB of photos, 100GB of movies, etc on to external drives, and clean install and then reimport everything, but even that will probably mean I cant reinstall my single user licesnse of MS office, VMware fusion, etc that I didn't buy on the App store.
