If your MacBook is too old to use Migration Assistant, you can manually transfer your data from one MacBook to another using these process.
Migration Assistant is the easiest way to transfer users, documents, computer settings and other items from an older computer to your new MacBook. You can use it to migrate data from another Mac, or even from a Windows PC. If your original computer is too old to use Migration Assistant, you can use the process in this article to manually copy many of your documents to newer MacBook.
Before you start transferring data from old computer to new MacBook, do these steps.
Go through the Setup Assistant on your new Mac if you have not already. Then, create a user account for each user that you want on your new Mac.
Before you copy anything from your old computer to your new computer, consider what you want to move and where the files belong on MacBook.
Documents and other data
In general, you can move any of your documents, music, movies and other files from one computer another. Simply copy the files to the same locations on your new Mac. For example:
Some applications need to install support files in special locations before they work. Instead of copying your apps from one computer to another, use these steps:
Choose one of the methods below to move files from your old computer to your new computer
Use an external drive
If both of your computers have USB or FireWire connections, you can copy your important files to an external drive to move the files between them.
Use Target Disk Mode
If both of your computers have FireWire or Thunderbolt ports, you can use Target Disk mode to connect one of your computers as an external drive. You may need additional cabling, such as a Thunderbolt to FireWire adapter, depending on how old your original Mac is.
The startup drive of the old computer should now show up in the Finder when you are logged in on the new computer. Use the steps in the section “Use an external drive” to copy your files from your old computer to your new Mac.
Use File Sharing
If both of your computers are connected to the same network, you can use File Sharing to copy items between them.
First, connect your Macs to the same network using Wi-Fi or Ethernet. If you don’t have access to a larger network, you can simply connect an Ethernet cable between your two computers. If your computer doesn’t have an Ethernet connection, check to see if you have a USB to Ethernet adapter you can use, or a Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter.
Next, enable File Sharing on one of the computers.
On the other Mac, connect the two computers using these steps:
You can now copy files between the two computers for this user. Repeat the steps above for any other users you have on your computer.
After you finish copying over all of your files, consider deauthorizing iTunes on your old Mac if you aren’t going to use it anymore. See “What to do before selling or giving away your Mac” for more information.
