I bought a macbook pro and have only just got round to transfering data to i via ethernet from imac. Being a relative mac novice i managed to get applications and programs across but not itunes or iphoto which is what i really wanted. It says i have an itunes library but I cannot access it. It also says that i have used 223GB out of a possible 232GB yet when i checked where the said 223GB is being used it could only account for 80GB for all users. Disk utility advises me i have 187,000 folders - i don't remember copying that many....
Can somebody please shed some light for me...???

cheers...

Leaving the issue of space aside for the moment.....

Did you use the Migration Assistant to transfer your data?
