Hi,

It's been awhile since I've posted and I need some expert advice. I'm planning on getting a new computer and selling off my old one. I want to know how I would be able to transfer my original setting to my new mac. I do know that I can't access the other accounts when I go through the super duper back up on my external. So it would be difficult for me to copy the files. However, the main thing I'm looking at is to not have to reinstall every single program I have on my computer.

Your help is graciously appreciated!

C.G.

I suggest just completely imaging your machine onto an external drive and loading your new computer with that disk image.

Read the very beginning and the end of this tutorial. They use SuperDuper! to clone over a hard drive, which is exactly what your wanting to do.

Good luck!
