comment MacBook Pro not noticing all files after cancelling and retrying Migration Assistant
I managed to transfer my data from an external hard drive with a Time Machine backup. I am leaving this question up in case it may be of use to anyone else.

I saw a lot of stuff on that site. What exactly is useful on it? Any specific pages?

comment Time Machine stuck on “Preparing Backup”
I tried verifying my main hard drive using the Disk Utility and everything seemed fine. I tried verifying the disk permissions and got some errors involving iTunes (I think), and I fixed them by clicking the "Repair Disk Permissions" button. I also tried verifying my external hard drive and it seemed fine. I tried the backup again and it froze like before.
