Hi Eric,

i have a wire-less connection for internet.

i would like to remove aperture on my older macbookpro as it takes up so much space.
at the moment i'm down to 7gb storage space..... removing aperture would free up a lot and hopefully make it a little faster.

i have installed aperture on the new macbook, which will be traveling with me and my camera.... there is lots of empty space there.

thanks for you help

regards

Ok,

 

What type of router do you have and is there anything else you would like to move to the new machine such as iTunes etc?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
linksys broadband router.

actually, everything is already on my new computer. the apple shop moved all my apps and docs to the new macbook.
i did not ask them to remove anything from the old one because i wanted to make sure all was there before removing anything.
trouble is.... i live in singapore and there is no apple shop here.... just resellers. i bought my macbook in zurich switzerland at the apple shop. they would be more than willing to help with my questions but my stay in switzerland was too short and i try to avoid traveling with 2 laptops....

hope this helps, thanks

Ok,


That is what I needed to know

 

To remove Aperture can you drag the application itself to the trash then find and delete the following folders and files:-

~\Library\Preferences\com.apple.Aperture.plist
~\Library\Caches\Aperture\
~\Library\Application Support\Aperture\
\Library\Application Support\ProApps\Aperture System ID
\Library\Application Support\Aperture\

 

Once you have done that you may also wish to download a free application called Disk inventory X from here http://www.derlien.com/index.html this is a great tool that will show you what is taking up space on your drive.

 

Once that is all done can you tell me if you are looking to share files from machine to machine or just want the ability to move them from one machine to the other?

 

Thanks

Eric

Ok,

 

Do you have a Mobile Me account?

 

If not you may wish to take a look at what it can do for you http://www.apple.com/mobileme/

 

The reason I suggest it is that it would be the best way to keep everything automatically in synch for you so that even if you are on the road with your new machine you would be synched at all times, Also God forbid something happened to one of your machines while you were travelling, You would still have a full synch to the point when you had issues so you could recover from the issue

 

Let me know what you think

 

Thanks

am a mobile me customer.
Expert:  Claws224 replied 4 years ago.

Ok,

 

In that case you can just use the Mobile e to sync your mail, Calendar, Favourates, Notes etc.

 

As for your iPhoto I would look at something like Fatcats iPhoto Library manager http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ this would allow you to synch your iPhoto library whenever you want so both macihes would have the same content.

 

Let me know what you think

 

Thanks

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
