After setting up a new user on my Air, can I still access Setup Assistant to transfer files from my old Mac?

November 30Hits:0
Only after setting up my user account on my new Air do I find out about Setup Assistant vs Migration Assistant. Since, I have tried Migration Assistant - via wireless - twice, to no avail. Both computers (new Mac and old) just stay busy looking for another computer on my network. All I really want to do is move/copy everything from my old Mac to the new Air. Suggestions? Miracles?  Thanks!


You can do it wirelessly, but that will take some time... you could also purchase a Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter or a Thunderbolt to FireWire adapter. That would certainly be faster. You should be able to purchase either adapter at your local Apple Store or at the online Apple Store.
Good luck,
