Trouble with Migration Assistant

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
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.

    hello. i am running mysql 5 on an imac with mac leopard osx10.5. i am able to create a mysql databse using the CREATE command and to use it using the USE command but i cant seem to create a table using the SOURCE command and an sql script file. when i type:



    SOURCE mysqlSource.sql;



    i get an ERROR message saying:



    Failed to open file msqlSource.sql, error: 2



    i have placed the script file in the /usr/local/musql/bin which is where mysql resides. i have also tried using the full path name for the file after the SOURCE command and i get the same error. i would like to know where the script file has to reside or how it has to be named. i sure would appreciate some help with this problem. thanks

    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.
