    I bought a new 13 MBP about 5 days ago, and I finally got around to buying a firewire cable to use with Migration Assistant. I want to transfer word docs, apps, music, settings and what have you to my MBP from my iMac.

    I hooked it all up, sat around for two hours and when it finally finished, I couldn't find a damn thing! No word documents, no folders, no nothing. I did find my rosetta stone which didn't work, but I probably have to reinstall that anyways.

    Where did it all go? I have 40gb of my 150 hard drive left so it's got to be somewhere!

    Or should I just restore my MBP (if possible?) and try it again?

    Did it put it all in a User Account different from the one you are logged in to?

    Did it create a new user account? Look in sys prefs > Accounts

    Why don't use just use the one that was transferred and delete the other one? You couldn't have added that much stuff in the 5 days you have had it. Make sure the transferred user account is an admin though before you delete your account.
