Mac newbie here. I have an iMac that my wife and I have accounts on. I bought her a MacBook Pro and I wanted to get her photo's, music, desktop, etc onto her MBP, so I 'migrated' the files from my iMac. What she now has is my account and her old account from my iMac, and her new account on her MBP. This brings me to two questions.
How do I remove my account and her old account from her MBP and get back that 45Gig of file space?
What is the best way to transfer her photo's, music, etc from my iMac to her MBP?

TIA- Jim

Read up on Accounts in Mac Help. I've not done a migration, but I know there's good info in there. You might still have questions, so fire away. Someone here will be able to help.
