View Full Version : Merging two set ups

9th February 2009, 07:26 PM
Hi Guys,
Hoping somebody might be able to suggest an easy way to achieve the following.

My wife and I have been working in separate cities for the last 12 months, Melbourne and Sydney. I have now come back home to Melbourne and brought back my shiny new 24" imac and this will now take pride of place rather than the old white 20" (although I still love it). The problem is we would like to merge our set ups, as we have both added heaps of new music, photos and bookmarks, is there an easy way to combine these. I dont really want go through and have to try manually compare and transfer them.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

If you can connect the two Macs (maybe the old one in Target Disk Mode (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1661)) then Migration assistant should be able to bring across a single user from the other machine. You'd run it while logged in as the new user on your new iMac.
