I just got a MacBook Pro with Retina display, and I only wanted to transfer the application since the MacBook Pro only has 250gb. The total to transfer was only 30gb, so I didn't think it would take a long time over wifi. The MacBook doesn't have an ethernet connection, and I don't have a Thunderbolt wire. The total time I waited was 6 hours, but in the last two hours it said 15 minutes left. I got tired of waiting, and I cancelled everything. I checked the space left on the MacBook, and apparently the stuff is there because now It has 42 used, and I only had around 11gb. I'm not sure where it is though. What do I do??

Check /Applications and ensure it didn't create a separate user of the data.
