    I upgraded to a 60gb SSD and also have a 1tb sata for the data. My problem is getting migration assistant to recognize the sata drive so I can transfer my user files from my time machine backup. I successfuly got the system and applications to my ssd in migration assistant. I also switched my home folder over to the sata with a guide I found on google. How do I get my user files to the sata if migration assistant can't recognize the drive.
    (drive is listed as internal in about this mac)

    How is the 1tb HDD connected? USB? If you hook it up does it not show the hard drive as being recognized at all (eg: no icon in mainframe?)

    Its hooked up to sata port. Its recognized by everything else. About this mac says its internal and macintosh hd sees it. But migration assistant doesnt.
