    Transferring Data form G4 to Mac Pro
    Can some shed some light on this please....When tranferring data from one Mac to another, Will all data be transferred including user account and software? I haven't tried it yet because I am scared I will not be able to transfer all my software and user account to my new Mac Pro. Please advise.

    are you using migration assistant, in applications > Utilities?

    that's the best way to make sure all your settings make it to your new machine

    as to the software - if you have leopard look at the sticky on apps that still have issues with 10.5

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    Another way is to copy your HDD contents to an external drive by USB 2 or Firewire. You can use an application such as Carbon Copy Cloner or Super Duper to copy the drive, do a clean install of Leopard and transfer your files.

    Use Migration Assistant. It will do exactly what you want.
