    Hi

    I apologise if there's already a thread for this which I haven't managed to find.

    I am a new macbook pro user and have pretty much no idea what I'm doing with the machine. It has dead pixels, intermittent SD card read failures and a ridiculously noisy fan, so I'm taking it back to hopefully be replaced.

    I want to take an image of the machine - apps, docs, everything, and be able to just load it onto the new one. Is this possible? If yes, does the disk encryption I have set have potential to cause issues?

    Look forward to hearing your advice.

    make a time machine backup on an external disk and then when you get the new one use migration assistant to transfer the stuff onto the new one

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately I was unable to create a time machine on a Windows server. Some issue to do with file system format if I recall.
