It’s been a while since I last had to migrate my personal machines. The last time came back in 2015, when I was moving my wife’s first-gen MacBook over to a new MacBook Pro. So many of the issues that Edward Haletky addressed in this post rang true.
I still remember being flummoxed when I tried to do the migration over Wi-Fi. I knew the 80GB hard drive on the old machine would take awhile, but the Migration Assistant estimated it would take 3 days! So off to the store I went to get a Thunderbolt 2 to Ethernet adapter. Once I was able to transfer over wire speeds, the process went much smoother.
In his post, Edward reviews the four methods to move your stuff, and gives some helpful tips to save time and effort.
