The MacBook in question has two user profiles (both administrators) with separate Apple IDs, separate workflows etc. (i.e., unrelated or loosely related to each other); one of the profiles is my own. If I use Migration Assistant to restore settings (appearance, mostly) for my own profile, can/will that destructively affect (override, erase, hide) that other profile or some information in it?

Please, also note that the other person is not a power user, so if some info or UI element becomes hidden (rather than lost), this is also something that I'd like to know about.

  • You cannot Migrate into an existing user so how are you planning to do this?

  • Ohh, I should've known that before adding new user profile on a shared machine (and looks like I'm not alone in this) Jan 16, 2022 at 13:44
