    I transfered all the files from an old system to Leopard using Migration Assistant and a firewire cable. The old system was unable to start up at all and I recovered all the 'hard drive' from that system before doing a complete clean of the hard drive.

    What I want to be able to do now is get a log entry on the system I transferred to of what files were transferred, and a log entry of what was done, ie shows a record of using Migration Assistant.

    CAn I get this data using Terminal? If so what file commands do I need to use. I know the date when I transferred/recovered all the files.

    Any help please.

    I suggest you start by using Console (in Utilities) to scan/search log files. Maybe search for "migration"

    Okay thanks.

    I can view the logs back only about 8 or so months. Is there anyway I can look further back. Is there a .setting? Can't see any way to do it
