Finally upgrading to Snow Leopard
Posted 24 October 2010 - 07:10 PM
I've been resisting the change to Snow Leopard because everything works as I like it and I'm not keen to mess with a good thing. (I used to be more techy and enjoyed upgrading stuff for the fun of it but now I like things to just work ) Now, with iLife11 it seems I have no choice but make the upgrade. I'm just a bit nervous about preserving Accordance the way I've set it up and I guess I'm really looking for reassurance here.
I've been told, and intuitively I agree, that the best way to upgrade is a clean install.
When I then migrate from a backup, will Accordance (9.0.6) migrate completely and exactly? Will I have to reinstall any/all modules? Is it simply about copying ~user/Library/Preferences/Accordance Preferences and ~user/Documents/Accordance Files?
How do I best do make the upgrade?
Sorry if this question has been asked before, I searched and couldn't find anything that really addressed my concerns.
Thanks in advance.
PS I'm running an early 2007 15" MBP Core2Duo 2.16GHz with 2Gb RAM. Will I see any noticeable difference in speed or performance?

I'm running Accordance 9.0.6 on OSX10.5.8.
I was planning to do a complete backup to external harddisk, then erase and install, finally migrate from harddisk.

Here are the instructions for copying Accordance files themselves to a new Mac (assuming you don't migrate):
Copy these folders to the same locations on the new Mac.
The last two contain your settings and saved file, it is good to backup these two folders from time to time
Then download and run the latest installer for Accordance.
