New Upgrade Option Variation w/ Tiger
Authored by: jeremywood on May 19, '05 07:22:12PM

A nice new variation that I tried with Tiger (and which can sort of be done with 10.3, but works best with the 10.4) is to backup, erase, and install.

BUT I made a new placeholder account. And I used the migration tool to move my old account, applicationss, etc over from the drive that I had backed up to.

So, I get my stuff, and I get a clean system, and it's pretty easy. Then, if I have any weird things happen, I can compare the behavior under my placeholder account with the one I transitioned over. Which might give me clues if there are any problems.

Or at least that would be the idea, if things weren't just working fine, which they are.
