My sister has just handed me her old and new macbooks and asked me to migrate then but her new macbook only has half the hard drive space of her old one (512gb vs 1TB)
She uses iPhoto and the library for that alone is 640GB, wondering what the best approach here is as looks like upgrading the internal SSD isn't possible right now.
As the new macbook has the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C type ports its probably best for her to get a large capacity fast new external HDD so I think I have a two options..
- Move her iPhoto library to the new external HDD then carryout the migration?
- Carryout the migration without moving photos, then copy the old library to the external drive and reconnect it to iPhoto on the new machine?
Also does anyone have any external HDD recommendations, form what I can find the LaCie Rugged STFR4000800 4 TB 2.5" External Hard Drive - USB Type C looks like the best option at the most reasonable price.
Any/all recommendations appreciated.
