Ok guys, I'm really struggling here!! Here's the story -- I previously had an old MacBook Pro which I sold on eBay to raise money towards a new MacBook. Before sending the Pro off, I backed everything up with Time Machine. My new MacBook arrived today and I thought it would be a simple process to restore my new MacBook from my Time Machine backup. However, it isn't!! I've tried every possible method I can think of and nothing works. It either says 'Transfer Error' or just stops. When I look at the error logs etc, it says 'permission denied'. I phoned Apple support who told me to just drag everything from my Time Machine backup in to the relevant folders on my computer, which I proceeded to do. However, with many files I get the error 'you do not have sufficient privileges'!?!? This is really starting to frustrate me. Can anyone shed any light on this and tell me what I'm doing wrong or how this issue can be resolved? Thanks in advance!
