Fran wants to know how she can transfer data from her external hard drives from her new Mac. Leo says that there's a migration assistant on the new Mac that will walk her through it. But depending on how old her Mac is, she may be stuck with a certain version of macOS, but she should be able to migrate the data straight over no matter what version macOS is. Does she have to have Apple do it? Leo says no.
Bob got a new Mac and wants to know how to transfer data from his old one. Leo says it should ask if the user wants to transfer from the old Mac at Setup. It's called the Migration Assistant. It may even do it via WiFi. But definitely over USB. And it could take a while. But it can get stuck, so if it doesn't move after a few hours, Bob may need to quit it. But he'll get most of the data.
Justin is buying a new 5K iMac. How does he migrate his old data into his new machine? Leo says that there is a migration tool built into the iMac to move it over, but if he doesn't want to move all of it, the migration tool will allow him to move just the apps. He should let it do that because it'll do a better job.
Steve has to get his daughter a new computer. What's the best way to transfer programs and data? Leo says it couldn't be easier. He just needs the cable that Apple offers. He just needs to connect the two, run the migration assistant, select what he wants transferred and it will do it. Leo's done it several times.
