comment When setting up a new laptop, Setup Assistant doesn't see all the data
@Buscar웃: Yes; it looks like the picture in step 7 of the the "Thunderbolt or FireWire" section of the article I linked. When I click the little triangle next to my user name to expand things out, I can see the directories in my home folder, but I can't expand any folders more deeply, and all the directories seem to be there at first glance (I have too many directories to really tell without doing a really exhaustive comparison).

@Buscar웃: I don't know what the 50 GB are, it doesn't display that. But there's nothing about any file restriction in their documentation about Setup/Migration Assistant, and indeed, that would be a very weird restriction (all it has to do with the files is put them back where they were before). And again, if I look on my Time Machine drive, it sees all my files, even though there shouldn't be any difference.

@Buscar웃: I see. But those are the instructions for manual migration; I'm using Setup/Migration Assistant, which should obviate the need to deal with that. It's not that it refuses to copy, it's that it thinks my home directory is about seven times smaller than it actually is.

@Tetsujin: I don't get an error, it just doesn't see all of my data.

@Buscar웃: I'm not sure what you're asking. At any rate, new computer hasn't completed the OS setup yet – there are no apps, no users, nothing.

comment How to enter in the apple symbol not in a web browser?
It's worth noting that this symbol is non-standard; it will be interpreted differently by different fonts.

comment Change Terminal.app's Default Shell to BASH
You can always control click instead of right click, which is the traditional way to access context menus.
