Tales From IT – Restoring Time Machine Backups to a New Mac Using Migration Assistant December 6, 2017

We’ve got an all-new Tales from IT, where we follow-up on an IT story we previously talked about.

Maniac’s girlfriend had a 2010 MacBook Pro which recently died on her. Thankfully, she had kept regular Time Machine backups before the computer died, and while they didn’t include files she had made in the last two months, the vast majority of her programs and documents were safely on her time machine drive.

Mac data is not compatible with Windows PCs, so to recover her data she needed to buy a new Mac. Macs have an internal program called Migration Assistant which is designed to copy data from older Macs using three possible methods: Ethernet, Target Disk Mode, or Time Machine. The first two options were not possible, so we attempted to move all the data from her Time Machine backup.

Here’s how it worked, some tips for what not to do, and some errors you can expect if you decide to perform this procedure!

Big news for Pokémon Go players! Niantic has just announced that Generation 3 Pokémon, the kind of Pokémon originally found in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, will start entering the wilds of Pokémon Go.

Take a look at the official reveal trailer:

Niantic has also announced Pokémon Go will soon feature a dynamic weather system which will adjust itself to the immediate weather of your location. This will have an effect on which Pokémon you’ll be able to catch in the wild, and how well your Pokémon’s attacks work during the weather conditions.

Pokémon Go is out now on Android and iOS devices.
