    Upgrading 2011 MacBook Pro

    Hi Adam, Thanks for the reply. I am not sure if all of her accounts are IMAP, but I'll check and add the ones that are. Thanks, Alan

    Upgrading 2011 MacBook Pro

    Ok, So I installed the 2 drives installed a clean version of High Sierra on the SSD, well it was actually Lion (I think) and then I had several updates to get it to High Sierra. Anyway, I got the SSD on APFS with High Sierra and the HDD formatted with APFS. I moved the iTunes and Photos libraries to the HDD and I managed to get them running from these old libraries. Photos was easy and straight forward, but iTunes proved more challenging. I forgot to deauthorize and sign out of iTunes and that was the biggest problem I had. Once I did that, it was easy sailing. My next problem I have is getting my wife's email onto the new drive. I have read a few sites and they did not work. Does anyone know if it is possible to use migration assistant just for email? Or if anyone knows of a method that might work? She uses iCloud and GoDaddy email (imap). Thanks for the help.

    Upgrading 2011 MacBook Pro

    Thanks for the advice johnfoster. I purchased the 1TB Sandisk SSD and the 2TB WD Blue HDD. I figured that I would use the SSD as my usual drive and then use the Data Doubler HDD for the storage hogs (Photos and iTunes). Adam covered it many times on the Maccast about using an external drive for Photos and iTunes libraries, so I would think it would be the same for my application. I have a 250GB SSD in my 2011 MacBook Pro that does not use Photos or iTunes and have about 30GB left over. I am sure I will back on here when I get all the parts installed. Thanks again,

    Upgrading 2011 MacBook Pro

    Hi Guys, My Wife's MBP 2012 has slowly be wanting more and more space and is getting slower and slower. Anyway, I have decided to go with the OWC Data Doubler with a 500GB or 1TB SSD ($250 Sandisk at BestBuy) for the boot drive and a 2TB or maybe 3TB HDD for everything else (right now she has about 100GB left on the 2TB HDD). When I do the install, does it matter which drive I put where? In other words, do I have to put the boot drive in the spot where the original drive is now and the HDD in the Data Doubler? Also, are there any formatting tips anyone could give me? I know there OWC has great install and formatting videos, but no videos on how to format the second drive. I've read in another post about johnfoster using symbolic links (Did I assume that is what SYMLINK is?) Thanks for any help,

    Address Book Contact Photo

    Hey everybody, My wife has a picture assigned to a contact in her address book that was taken with her iPhone. She told me that when she took the photo that she assigned it to the contact and did not save it. She would really like the photo. Is there a way to extract the photo from the address book? Thanks, Alan

    Disk Image (.DMG)

    Thanks for the reply, In the Open With menu all I see is Disk Utility (default) and Other... I did a search for diskimagemounter in finder and came up with nothing. Did it get removed? Thanks, Alan

    Disk Image (.DMG)

    Hey guys, My wife has a MacBook Pro that just recently started this. Whenever she downloads a .DMG file and clicks on it, nothing happens (so she thought). I found out that if I open disk utility it shows up in the list on the left and when I double click on it, it opens up. Is there anyway to get it back to open to the desktop? Thanks, Alan

    Fax from Mac? - SOLVED

    Thanks for the reply, You would think in this day and age that one could easily do it over the internet (for free), but I guess faxing is a dead (or dying) technology. Alan

    iCal & Address Book

    So I bit the bullet and I removed the new drive and I installed the old drive (superduper copy). When I booted up, I got a folder icon (i think that is the cannot find OS error). My wife reminded me that all our calendars are sync'd with MobileMe. So I think that iCal will be OK. Is there a way to get at least my contacts from my iPhone to the iMac or maybe MobileMe. A local Mac shop suggested I use Migration Assistant. I tried and I didn't know which folder the iCal and Address Book is stored. Any Other ideas? Thanks, Alan
