Question: synching 2 imac computers

I have 2 imacs; one is Active and contains the data I want. The 2nd has been idle for several months. I want to put the 'idle' one back in use and want it to contain the the data that's on the 'active' imac. I have time capsule but I'm wondering if I can connect the 2 computers and update the data files in that manner.


I'm running Sierra 10.12.26


Thank you.

If the 2 computers have the correct cable connections, try the Target Disk Mode.


Target Disk Mode - Mavericks


Target Disc Mode


You could also run a clone, which you could update on a regular basis.


Clone - Carbon Copy Cloner (Often recommended as it has more features than some others)


Clone – Data Backup


Clone – Deja Vu


Clone - SuperDuper


Clone - Synk


Clone Software – 6 Applications Tested
