Apple Updates Migration Assistant Ahead of Lion Launch Tomorrow
Apple today issued an update to Migration Assistant
in preparation for the arrival of Mac OS X Lion, tomorrow. This update is only necessary if you plan on transferring settings from a system that currently uses Snow Leopard to another system that’s already been upgraded to Lion. If you are simply upgrading to Lion on a Mac that’s running Snow Leopard, then this update will not affect you.
According to Apple’s software update utility, “This update addresses an issue with the Migration Assistant application in Mac OS X Snow Leopard that prevents transfer of your personal data, settings, and compatible applications from a Mac running Mac OS X Snow Leopard to a new Mac running Mac OS X Lion.”
The update weighs in at a mere 312KB, so it shouldn’t take more than a few seconds to download and run the update. That is of course, unless you have any other software that needs to be updated; then I suspect it will take a bit longer.
Migration Assistant, for those of you who many not remember, is an Apple utility that has been designed to make the process of moving important settings and data from one computer to a Mac a much easier process. If you have a PC and are switching to a Mac, Migration Assistant can really help new Mac users set up their new systems with ease.
Mac OS X Lion is set to pounce tomorrow morning. Are you looking forward to it as much as I am?
