Connect sick iMac to another comuter
Last month, I replaced the hard drive in my 2011 iMac. The other day, the video card died (I'm assuming that's it, green screen with black and white lines, keeps restarting by itself). For some reason (and that's a separate issue), there's a very important file I cannot find on my Time Machine backup. What I would like to do is connect the iMac with a MacBook to see the hard drive on the iMac and look for that file there. I looked at the post about using a target/host setup, but it doesn't seem to be exactly what I need. I want the laptop to be itself, and the hard drive on the iMac to show up as a connected hard drive on the la[top. I bought a Thunderbolt cable and connected the twpo computers. Now what?
