Manually moving server files to new Mac - 08/12/07 12:22 PM
For the last 3-4 years, I was using a G5 as the home to my NUDC server. The hard drive in this computer was starting to have some directory problems. So, I first added a new HD, patched up the original HD as best as I could with Diskwarrior, and then tried to migrate my original HD to the new one. It did not quite work as there were permissions errors. I just got a new MacPro and elected not to use Migration Assistant because I have grown queasy about the integrity of the old HD. I did back up the important data and have actually mounted it as a slave HD in the MacPro. Before reformatting that HD, I want to manually move the server files onto it. Can some kind soul tell me where to look for the appropriate files? Thanks.
