best way to transfer photos from the iMac on external hard drive

If you are mobile loose photo files, drag them in here and if you are going to be removed from the inside, keep a copy on a second disc.

If you move an iPhoto, Aperture, or photo library, make sure that the external hard drive contains a volume to the Mac OS Extended format, drag the library there, launch the application with the key Option key, choose it, confirm that it works and if you are going to be remove from the inside, keep a copy of it on a second disc.

  • The best way to transfer items from the old to the new mac?

    I don't want to transfer the 'bad things' of my old macbook pro to my new macbook air.

    I understand how to transfer my whole system, but which would also take the old stuff I want to leave behind.  You are addressing a model here, so that's why I'd like my new mac to not be infiltrated by bad things.  I cleaned as best as I can on my old mac.

    I think that I can choose what to take charge using a different method.  I discovered only where are my emails.  Use this as an example, do you think that it a bad idea for me to decide what to transfer?  I'd hate to lose points.  I really need to transfer all my word documents and software I use, for example, my family ancestry tree software.  Apart from the word, my tree (which has been downloaded using a disc), software emails, I can leave behind everything else.  Please give me your impressions.

    I suggest that you use the Migration Wizard. You might find this article helpful: move your content to a new Mac - Apple Support

    What is the best way to transfer pictures from an old computer to a flash drive or a drive back then to a new computer?

    The easiest and most reliable I've found is to make the direct drag-and-drop method.

    (1) on the old computer, open your Windows Explorer and go to your photos.

    (2) open another Windows Explorer window and access your 'Computer' folder and in your flash drive

    (3) drag the photos to the flash drive.

    (4) take the flash drive on the new computer and drag them into your images folder

  • Windows XP - a problem to transfer big file from laptop on an external hard drive

    I have a problem to transfer large files (mail.pst - zipped file - 5Gbyte) of the laptop (Dell Latitude D630) on an external hard drive (WD 320 G - FAT 32) where each time, I got the message "there is not enough free space on the disk" although I did successfully drive clean on both sides and there is enough space on both sides (not less than 25 GB).

    Also, I did a checkdisk command and he succeeded, and I use Windows XP

    I did several tests to resolve and in the end, I found that I convert the format of external hard drive FAT 32 to NTFS, and then I could successfully transfer the file.

    I used the following commands:

    (1) command line then chkdsk to repair bad sectors

    (2) convert the command line to change the format to FAt 32 to NTFS

    Note: For Windows xp, "convert" command will not delete the files from the hard drive

  • Error message "unable to copy the file"hiberfil", it is used by another person or program." Problem copying content from your PC to external hard drive.

    Original title: problem to copy content from your PC to external hard drive.

    I use Windows XP 2000 and am trying to restore my pc to factory settings as it is continuously 'stick '. When you try to copy my drive "c" on an external drive I get a message saying "unable to copy the file"hiberfil", it is used by another person or program." Close any program that might be using the file and try again "." What is 'hiberfil' and how do I close it down as I am not aware that I use?

    Concerning

    Pete

    The hiberfil.sys will be created every time that you start... If you put in hibernation enabled in your control panel, Power Options and the file is 'open' to think that you can actually choose to Hibernate at any given time.  When you Hibernate XP gives a note of it and will write a hiberfil.sys sometimes important in the c:\ folder so that when XP fires again upwards and returns from hibernation, XP will read the hiberfil.sys file and return to the situation that you were in when you put into hibernation.

    I use to be a chronic hibernant because it takes less time to return after hibernation as a cold start.  Sometimes, it can actually be slower that a cold so start your system based on the amount of RAM has.  The more RAM you have, the more your hiberfil.sys will, if sometimes it's faster to move with just a cold start if you Hibernate (26,03 seconds for me).

    If hiberfil.sys is giving you a hard time (you would not in any way copy it) disable hibernation in your Power Options and the file will be deleted immediately since it would be is no longer necessary.  That would solve this, but if you are trying to copy the entire C drive, you will have other files to complain after that.

    It is certainly possible to make a complete copy of the C drive, if you want, but you will have to initialize on something next to your drive hard if you want to do this so the XP files are not used - then you can copy anything and everything.  You can get some imaging software of disc that will also help you.

    It depends on what the problem is you want to solve and what you wand to end up with when you're done (so far, unspecified).

    I would work on figure our why your XP is paste and fix it in place.  XP should not be sticky.
