Max5, new computer, and Time Machine

Nov 17 2013 | 3:06 am

Hi everybody

Max 5 is installed on my old white Mac Book (2009)and Snow Leopard. I’ve a Time Machine back up of this white Mac Book, on an external disk.

Now I’ve a new Mac Book Pro 15" Retina, and I’ve decided to transfer my Max5 licence on this Mac Book Pro too. Can I connect my Time Machine external disk on my new computer, and import all concerning Max5 of my old white Mac Book (for exemple all my .maxpath patches) ?

Thanks soooooooooooooo much for help…. I need you because I’m note skilled….

Have a nice day

hmmm…. I’m not sure if it’ll work. Normally I would just copy everything from my max directory onto a USB stick or non time machine drive and then manually copy it over after I reinstalled max. No harm in trying though as time machine doesn’t ever delete anything.
Always have two backups of everything with a mac, time machine and a dedicated external drive/16 gig usb stick :)
