    OSX 10.3.9 iBook to OSX 10.4.10 MacBook
    Okay, so I got a Macbook to replace my old 900MHz iBook.

    I used the automatic transfer thing that my Macbook prompted me to do - but here's the issue: I believe I had some, well, some crap on the old computer that got transfered over (Old library files, ect), and for the life of me I can't get MacPython to work on the Macbook, which is rather upsetting as I am an amature programmer.

    I was wondering if there was any way to detect uneeded files and delete them, or if i should just reinstall the OS, and just put back the music/movies/reinstall the programs.

    Thanks,
    Massasoit.

    Welcome to Mac-Forums, Massasoit.

    As far as I know, you'll have to do that manually. That's what I did anyhow when I went from my G4 iMac to the iMac G5 I now use.

    Thinking back, I should have transferred only my internet settings and stuff like that. All the apps that were important to me (even those that weren't!), I had the installers for and it would have been a much better idea to start from scratch.
