Yes, that's what my question above was referring to. It was suggested that I do not do a full migration from the Seagate b/c some of the issues I was having previously might migrate with it. Instead, I should back up files individually. I already have all of my software and apps uploaded again...Just need the meat to these things.
Music first. I've already done documents. Movies are processing now, I hope.
There is not a folder titled Music.
And it's not just music I need. I need all the "meat" to all of my apps. The Stickie Notes. The emails that were saved in files on my Mail program. The Silhouette app files (that's a craft/paper cutting app...I designed some of those myself and they save - i thought - w/in Silhouette.)
I know how to move things over in a basic sense, but I don't know where my stuff is hiding.
For example, the one thing i found was my photos. I "opened package contents" of iPhoto and found all of my .jpg Masters hiding there.
It's titled "backups.backupdb"
Then "Amy Kirchhoff's Macbook"
Then all the dates I backed up up on.
That's fine. What do I need to do?
Okay. Also, found Music in an older backup. ?? Weird.
Still need the other stuff though. I really think it's trapped in this "terminal" business.
It's just "joining your session" forever...
Are we still trying to join? my screen is still up.
