    Hi

    New to MacBook so please bear with me.

    I have gigabytes of data on my Laptop running Windows 7. I want to migrate my Outlook files and accounts to MacBook.

    The tool supplied on Apple's site appears to be for wireless connection only and takes an eternity failing after a couple of hours.

    Is there a way to use a similar method but to an external hard disk.

    I am reluctant to do it manually as I am unfamiliar with Mac OS and file storage.

    Could you not just connect the two with an Ethernet cable? Then either use migration assistant from apples website or transfer the files you want manually.
