I wish to move many GB of data (docs, photos, etc.) from one user ID to another one on the same Mac.  I know I can use Time Machine and run a back-up, I can also copy the folders to (8 GB) DVDs.

 

Are there other options I can use?  What would these be and what would be the benefits of using one method rather than another.  Eventually I want to remove one of the user IDs after everything has been moved to the other one.  I wondered if sharing folders would benefit and how is this accomplished?  If one ID is later removed, then what happens with the sharing of folders?

 

Thanks!
