Hi Just a cautionary warning for folk moving on from an old Mac using Snow Leopard or earlier to a new one on Mojave. The same may apply to later Mac OS too. I did the above on a new iMac, 3 weeks ago via Migration Assistant. Everything occurred without much ado and was successful. The shared folder locations migrated too and I was able to access the data. However, I then discovered that I could no longer edit the sharing permissions nor delete shared folders in the Sharing section of System Preferences. I posted about the issue here: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/unable-to-edit-or-remove-shared-folders-on-new-imac.2180484/ Calling Apple Care did not really do much - they were essentially clueless. I am in Asia and the service people are not technically competent. They have to pass the case on to their site engineers in a somewhat inefficient manner. You cannot deal directly with a site engineer and they take 2 days to respond to to the service staff at Apple Care handling the case. My suspicion is that the site engineers also do not know much and worse still do not understand basic English. After much to and fro for 3 weeks, they reverted to say it was an issue with the migration screwing up the Open Directory. They themselves did not know what to do and basically asked me to reset the iMac to factory settings and set it up again from scratch - not like that was something I could not think of doing myself. That was the shocking thing - they were unable to give a definitive answer or a solution. They were just suggesting I try things out just as you would do on your own. Why are we paying for support from people who have really no expertise to speak of? The service attendant had extended my return period on the iMac and I will be returning it. I really do not think it is my job to help Apple troubleshoot their software bugs, especially not when i paid good money for a new computer - and from what I have seen too much at that. I basically wasted 3 weeks setting up a computer and installing software. I hope Apple service is better elsewhere in the world because it really seems to me that they have no clue as to what they are doing. My prior experience with Apple support up till now has been different although the last time of my contact with them was a long while ago. It does seem that they make software with too many glitches now and the support people are not really up to scratch to help you fix the issues. The whole ease of Migration Assistant is hyped up on the Apple website but the truth of my experience could not be more different. The only thing I migrated was System & Network settings. I created everything else from scratch and am still facing issues. It's a shame my new Mac experience ended up this way. I'll sit it out for a while and think about getting something else. So whatever you do, please do NOT use migration assistant to migrate System and Network settings because Apple will not be able to help and you will end up with a Mac where you are unable to change or edit sharing folders for good.
