So, I have a 2008 MBP that has pretty much become inoperative. I have a time machine back up that is extremely recent and would like to know what my options are for Migrating this back up to my wife's MBP. Both Macs are/were running the most current version of Mavericks. I am pretty sure the solution below would work: - The HD on the MBP needs to be partioned in order for my Mac data to be migrated onto the functioning Mac. (However, this would mean that reboot would be necessary to switch over from one state to the other, correct?) However, is there a way to create two Users and then dump my Data into that new user account without creating two partitions on the HD? How would this affect iTunes library and syncs? Any advice on this subject would be extremely helpful.
