How can I change safe my mid August 2009 MacBook Pro of El Capitan safe...?

Unfortunately my iPhone 5 has stopped working yesterday, so I had a 6s, but I'm still in 10.7.5 naturally now I need to update my laptop, but the last time I tried to update my laptop a few years apparently from what had been told to me by the MacMall apple technician in Santa Monica , it's that I didn't delete the old partition out of my HD, then the laptop was stuck in a lock box. Which resulted in me having to wipe the HD. Is there a way to access El Capitan safely without any headaches and being able to have my files in order with the new OS...? My MacBook Pro is a Mid-August 2009 with processor Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53 GHz, 4 GB RAM. Thanks in advance, any comment on this situation is welcomed.


Here are a few steps you need to take before moving on to the latest version of Mac OS X.

First, run the software update or the App Store and install all the updates available for the operating system you have now. The system must be in good working condition. Do not expect an upgrade of the operating system to repair a computer that is abnormally slow or unstable. More likely, the upgrade will make the problem worse.

If you have less than 4 GB of memory, as shown in the box about this Mac, and your model has an expandable memory, install at least that a large part, or preferably the maximum amount of the machine can use according to the specificationsof Apple. If the memory is not expandable, or you don't want to upgrade, turn off using a newer Mac OS x version until you decide to buy a new computer.

If you have already upgraded the memory, check the specs to make sure that the memory is compatible, both the type and capacity. Do not install more memory that is officially supported by the model. Sellers of spare memory may contradict Apple specifications because they want to sell memory. Their guarantees that you can exceed the specs are not not trustworthy. Although the memory of out-of-spec worked, it may not work after the OS upgrade, or you may not upgrade at all.

Make sure all of your most important third-party software are up-to-date and compatible with the current OS x Very old versions of Microsoft and Adobe products, for example, may not be compatible. The Web site is the best source for this information. Incompatible third-party software causes almost all problems with OS X updates.

Finally, in back up all the dataand be sure you know how to restore if you don't like the results of the upgrade.

If you have a with a sufficient capacity storage device, you can copy the boot volume in disk utility, then run him and to upgrade. So, if you don't like the results, all you have to do is change the setting in the startup disk preferences pane and restart.
