    Hi all,

    I just purchased a new Macbook, and when I initially started up it asked if I wanted to transfer files from my old computer. I said no because I did not have a firewire cord, but now I cannot figure out how to get back to that option.

    Any help out there?

    Thanks!

    In the Utilities folder inside Applications, I believe it's called the "Migration Assistant" or something similar. :)

    Or just restart the old Mac while holding down T with the computer plugged into the new one with the Firewire cable, then it shows up as an external drive on the new Mac.
