My 2011 13" Macbook Pro (running Snow Leopard) has been accidentally damaged to the point where it won't boot up. I'll get it repaired but needed a replacement that day so I went to the nearest Apple Store and bought a new machine running Mountain Lion. I ran Migration Assistant and it's done a good job of moving apps and accounts but no data in iCal, Mail, iTunes, etc. I took the hard drive out of the old machine and copied the sparse bundle onto the new machine. The thing is the old machine was encrypted with Snow Leopard's Filevault. I can mount the sparse bundle drive on my new Macbook by typing the password. This gives me access to my old files but when I rerun Migration Assistant it cannot see the sparse bundle drive so won't give me the option of restoring from it, even though the drive is mounted. Is that because it's encrypted? Just to clarify, the sparse bundle is from the old machine encrypted by filevault. It is NOT a Time Machine backup. I do have a Time Machine backup but I'm on vacation so won't have access to it for 2 weeks. I've Googled for several hours but cannot find the answer. Does anyone know the answer of how I can get Migration Assistant to see the sparse bundle once I've typed in the password and mounted the drive?
