Trouble with Migration Assistant

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I transferred my data files from Windows XP to my new iMac (OSX -Lion) via network . My problem is that all of the data went to the 256GB SSD. How do I move the data from the SSD to my ATA hard drive? I would like to be able to view the files in the SSD but can't see the individual files. This is my first post and I do appreciate the help.

If you move the root-level folders, invisible items will be moved with them but if you need to see them, you can make invisible files visible using the following commands in /Applications/terminal:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
killall Finder

Change YES to NO to put it back again.

Is this due to a migration problem? If not, it's a different topic and should be in a separate forum thread.

You should be able to type SOURCE and drag the SQL file into the terminal window.

If it's for migrating a database from one machine to another, you can do a full sqldump.
