Customer Question
Hello - I just...

Hello - I just used the migration assistant to share data from my IMac to my Macbook Air. It seemed to go through successfully, but I can't find any of the 'transferred' data on my Macbook now. Can you help? Thanks, Kevin

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iMac?

OSX

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iMac? What have you tried so far?

I just tried it for the first time, since there's a folder on my IMac that I use for business, that I wanted to share with my new Macbook. Again, I went through all the steps and it seemed to be successful, but again, I can't find any of the new date on the Macbook.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No - that's it.

It should be in the accounts that it was in before. Is it not there?

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
