I’m getting ready to replace my 2011 iMac with a new one. Lately, the iMac has been showing its age with lots of spinning beachballs and general slowdowns. When I switch over to the new machine, I want to clear out as much cruft as possible by NOT merely using Migration Assistant to copy the 2011 hard drive over to the new system. Heck, the 2011 iMac was originally copied from a 2006 iMac — God knows what ancient code is lurking in some abandoned plist, waiting to wreak havoc! So, my plan is to start fresh with the new iMac, re-download all of my apps, reset (gulp) all of my preferences… However, there are some things I need to copy over wholesale from the old iMac. Documents folder iTunes library Photos library Mail (from Mail.app) For #1, I can just drag and drop across the network. But what is the best way to move 2-4 over? It’s been five years since I switched machines, and all I did back then was tell Migration Assistant to copy everything. Would love any advice/thoughts/heckling. Thanks, all!
