I currently own an "old" Macbook Pro OS X 10.6.8 and want to transfer data to my "new" Macbook Pro OS X 10.7.2. I have the old Macbook backed up on Time Machine. The new Macbook is my work computer and has already been set up (i.e. I cannot use the easy "transfer data option" available when you startup the new Macbook for the first time.)


Can I use Time Machine with backup data from my old Macbook to transfer it to my new Macbook? How do I do this?


Thanks in advance for your advice!



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
