    Hi I am helping a friend transfer his files from his old over heated macbook 2006 to his new macbook pro

    WE have a external hard drive case for the old macbook hard drive and I am looking for a "quick" way to transfer all the files to his new computer from this

    Some of the files are gone and we are guessing that is the heat damage and want to get the rest off ASAP

    We already have a new external hard drive to back up his files

    thank you to anyone that can point me in the right direction

    John

    So your asking if there is a quicker way other then just copying the files?

    pretty much and I just highlighted all of the address book files and dragged though it said none of the files were "good" um are those damaged? they show up fine as a file but...uh do I need to drag them on the desktop and then into address?
