Newer MBP Advice for Migrating all Data


Recommended Posts

migration assist, from a time machine backup, should do it. you may need to re-authenticate some 3rd-party plugins (if they're tied to the hardware address of your previous mac, or... just because)...


when you first power up the new mac, you'll have the option to connect the TM drive, and move things over. make sure your backup is as recent as possible

So, i have an SSD external drive. I should put a copy of the TM back up

on there and then migrate it to the new MBP?


set up that drive with time machine, then back up directly to it from your current mac, at the last minute... then you can migrate from the external to the new mac. the new mac will offer the option to migrate 'from a time machine drive'... something like that.
