I did a search came up with not much? I also don't know if this is the correct forum? I have a 2012 Mac mini I may have to sell. My question/s is/are how do I put all my data on an external HDD, reformat the minis 1TB 5400 HDD that came in the unit, Install a clean copy of Yosemite and sell it. And when I get another Mac load all my data into it. All of this being the safest possible way? Is it as straight forward as this sounds? Would I be able to also move my Applications this easy? I also have an external 480gb SSD with a clean install of Yosemite and Parallels 10 and Win 7 Home premium 64 bit. It does function as a startup disk. Would I be able to just plop that into the mini (to sell) or another mini when I buy one and use it for the system/startup drive? I have to sell this mini to pay bills. I can get by with an old windows laptop for the web browsing I do until I have my sh*t together again. Thanks.
