How Transfer Data & Settings from One User Account to Another
Apparently one of my user standard accounts has become corrupted. I have been advised to create a new user account which I have done.
How do I transfer all my data and settings etc from the old user account to the new one?
Thanks in advance.
First question is, do you want to? I mean, if the settings are corrupted, then creating a new account with the same settings won’t solve anything.
As for the data, if you copy everything but /Users/olduser/Library to /Users/newuser you should be okay. You’ll need to fix the ownership. I don’t know how to do that in the Finder, but in the Terminal, you would do it via:
sudo chown -R newuser /Users/newuser/
