Have just bought a new MacBook Air with Lion to my wife...
During the setup there was an option to run an assistant to move files, e-mail accounts and similar from an old Windows PC to the new MacBook Air. Unfortunately I didn't have access to my wife's old Windows PC at the time of the initial setup of the MB Air, but the instructions said it could be done later.
So we've installed MS Office and other things in the initial account. Yesterday I was about to start the "Windows migration assistant" and got all her outlook e-mails, photos, documents and stuff migrated from the old Windows PC into the MB Air.
Followed these instructions:
In the instructions there's a note - reading:
Note: This process will create a new user account on your Mac to contain the Windows PC information that is migrated over. It will not merge the information with an existing user account on the Mac.
OK - so, now we've got the initial user account 'Maria' (which was setup during the primary installation and which holds all the MS Office programs and other settings and installations) - AND - a new user account 'Mia'.
The new user account ('Mia') holds all the old Windows Outlook e-mails, photos and documents, while the initial user account ('Maria') holds the MS Office package, other programs and settings.
So - is there any way to move the old outlook e-mails to the 'Maria' user account along with all the documents, photos and so on - in order to then just delete the new 'Mia' user account. Because it's not very practical to have two user accounts to switch between.
OR - is a complete re-install of the MB Air required and IF I would run the "Windows migration assistant" directly during the re-install would the files end up in the just one user account then ?!
Any help and recommendations would be wonderful...
THANK YOU !
