Customer Question
Hi! I upgraded my...

Hi! I upgraded my MacBook Pro to High Sierra, but now my Logic 9 does not work. (I should have checked!) Now I need to downgrade to an older MacOS to access my content. I have downloaded El Capitan and installed it on an external USB drive. I can boot from that, but then I do not see my data on the MacBook--only the new identity on the external drive. How do I boot from the external drive but still see all my internal data?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

Ages ago

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

Why would I do that?

YOu can't you have to install Logic on your external drive then transfer your files to the new drive in the same location Music / Logic.

What Customers are Saying:

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
