I’ve been using a 1 TB “My Passport for Mac” for the last couple of years with my “late 2011” MacBook Pro. It connects via USB. Has worked fine with Mavericks and previous OS’s.
Now I’ve purchased a new, “late 2013” MacBook Pro, migrated all my data to it, and installed Yosemite.
Can I use my same “My Passsport…” to back up the new Mac, retaining the data from the old Mac? (I have plenty of room left on the drive.)
If so, will the disc automatically recognize my new Mac and create a new initial backup?
Can I get a USB-Thunderbolt adapter and back up faster using that?
Any advice appreciated.
