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?

IMac (Intel) :: Migration Assistant Doesn't Recognize Time Machine On External HDD

Sep 1, 2014

Using Migration Assistant, I'm trying to transfer back-up files (whole system) from my Western Digital, External HDD to a new-to-me iMac which I've just purchased used. The External HDD has all my files (hopefully!) from my recently stolen iMac. As you can imagine, the circumstances are a bit unexpected and unsettling.

I've followed Apple's instructions for using MA with an external drive, but get hung up like others before me when it comes time for my new (used) computer to locate the disc from which to transfer the files. I've read the replies to others who have posted with similar difficulties using Snow Leopard, but resolving the issue seems to be just out of reach.  

Original computer is now unavailable (stolen); it last ran on Snow Leopard, 10.6.3 to 6.8.New computer is used, and also runs on 10.6.8.Both computers are iMac 2009, tho slightly different versions, if that has any bearing on things.I created a temporary account on my new-to-me computer to make the data transfer, so that there wouldn't be an accounts conflict, as others have suggested.Western Digital External HDD, "My Book, Studio Edition," 1TB. I'm using the FireWire 800 port on the iMac. If I need to erase the hard drive on my "new" computer, I'll need a little instruction and hand-holding on that one.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Migration Assistant Transferred Applications But Not Files

May 19, 2012

My intel iMac hard drive crashed. I had it backed up with Carbon Copy Cloner. The technician who fixed the hard drive put SL on the new hard drive. I tried to restore with CCC first but it didn't restore anything. I used Migration Assistant and it asked about duplicate user names so I gave it a new name to be safe. I now have all my apps but no files. I used MA again and decided to use the same user name this time. I ended up with 2 accounts with the same name but no files. I was hoping to end up with the same computer (e.g. same desktop, all files in the same folders as before, iPhoto, iCal, Address Book, Dashboard etc. all organized and acting the same way as before). Every looking and acting the same way with the exception of the subtle changes brought about by SL.

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 :: Migration Assistant Doesn't See Time Machine Backup?

Dec 27, 2009

I am trying to reinstall clean Snow Leopard on my iMac. I made a partition on my iMac internal HD(on the same physical drive as a system) for Time machine and ran backup.

After that I started up with Snow Leopard DVD, used Disk utility to clean old system partition and installed Snow Leopard.

But when I run Mingration assistant, it doesn't see Time Machine disk to restore. I see TM partitioning in finder and it's look OK, but migration assistant doesn't recognize it.

How I could force migration assitant to recognize backup? Or how I could migrate my setting from this backup?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migration Assistant Doesn't See Time Machine Volume?

Mar 6, 2012

I'm moving from a MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 to a MBP running 10.7.5. I thought this would be pretty simple  ... just attach my Snow Leopard Time Machine external drive to the Lion MBP and run Migration Assistant. 

But when I go through the MA steps, MA does not see my TM drive. I've made sure I have the latest upgrades and have run Disk Utility's First Aid on the TM drive. 

Ideas? I know I can try MA with other interfaces but using TM allows me to work on my old computer until my new one is ready. 

The TM drive is a 500GB Iomega eGo drive.

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

Intel Mac :: Migration Assistant 10.4.11 To 10.6.4?

Jul 5, 2012

I'm having trouble using Migration Assistant to migrate my old iMac PPC G4 with 10.4.11 to my new iMac Intel i5 with 10.6.4. I used the option to use Ethernet or Wireless since the new iMac only accepts Firewire 2.0 and the old Mac is Firewire 1.0.  I connected an Ethernet cable between the computers AND both are connected to the same network. 

Using Migration Assistant on the new Mac, it brings up the screen that it is looking for the other Mac and gives me a passcode to enter when prompted on the old Mac.  Using Migration Assistant on the old Mac, it brings up the screen that is it "Searching for other computers..." and does nothing else. 

On the new Mac, migrate option "From Another Mac".  On the old Mac, migration option "To Another Mac". 

What can I do to make both Macs play nice?

OS X :: New IMac - Migration Assistant Vs Manual Transfer

Feb 11, 2010

Eagerly awaiting my ship date for a new iMac (having been burned by two models with screen problems at the end of last year... another story). But I face three choices when it arrives to replace my trusty MB.

1. Use Migration Assistant to bring over apps, files, my library or everything.
2. Restore from my most recent Time Machine backup.
3. Manually re-install my apps and simply move across my files and folders.

Does anyone know whether there's any benefit to the "cleaner" option 3? Is there any difference between 1 and 2? I feel instinctively that my prinstine Snow Leopard-powered iMac would be better off for the minimalist option, but if there are no concrete advantages, I'll let Time Machine take the strain.

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?!

Intel Mac :: Migration Assistant On Computer With A Dead Screen?

May 10, 2012

I have 2 iMacs (intel).

On one (10.5.8) the screen died but the computer itself is fine. I have it connected through another computer so I can continue working (pain in the butt). My boss bought me a new one (10.7.4). I need to migrate all my old software and files to the new one but Migration assistant tells me I need to open migration assistant on the old one. Obviously I can't see to do that since my screen died. 

Is there another way I can migrate without having to open it on the old computer?

It just sits there spinning forever, and never finds the drive.
