    Mum has just gone from a mac mini to a PC. I still have her mac mini (I haven't cleaned it up yet). What would be the best way to get her photos/contacts over to the PC?

    Hi gadetgirl

    You can copy the backup of your mom's mac mini from:
    /users/(username)/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

    To her new computer to:
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Note: To quickly access the Application Data folder, click Start, and choose Run. Type %appdata% and click OK.
    Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

    Hopefully this is helpfull
