Great forum. I have a new iMac coming and will most likely want Apple's Migration Assistant to move everything. However, I want to move many but not all of my applications from my five-year old MacBook Pro on Snow Leopard to the new machine on Lion. Like most of us, we install myriad apps over the years, many of which are never used and simply occupy disk space. However, properly removing them such that all the associated files are removed is a drag unless you have an Uninstaller particularly for that application. Does anyone have a good methodology for doing this other than letting Migration Assistant do everything? I'm willing to do it manually, too, but that's really painstaking if you don't have installation .dmg files or CDs for everything. I want my new machine to have as clean an install as possible. And what about inheriting "problem files." Anyone have a recommended "cleansing" process to run on the existing internal/external volumes before porting over to a virgin machine? Thanks for any input. And happy 2012. We can all use a better year, methinks.
