Unable to access files from Migration Assistant

  jaigee 19:38 22 Jun 2020

Hi, Have just bought a brand new Macbook pro. Having completed setup wizard, i tried to migrate my files from my old macbook. All seemed to go ok, took hours over wifi. But apart from the Apps appearing on the new mac, nothing else is visible apart from a few inaccessible files. I am sure its a permission based problem, having looked at the HDD I can see approx 200GB stored as Data. None of which i can see. Is it worth doing a clean install, formatting the drive and migrating files with the startup wizard. There is no point me have 200GB of inaccessible data that i can not access on my new machine. Would really appreciate some advice.

Cheers J
