  • My Macbook Pro was stolen, and I have replaced it with a Macbook Air. New hard drive is too small for a Time Machine restore. How do I restore my more-expensive apps (ie iWorks) on my new Macbook without repurchasing them?

    My Macbook Pro was recently stolen, and I have replaced it with a Macbook Air. I attempted to simply do a restore from the Macbook Pro's Time Machine backup, but since the new Macbook Air's hard drive is significantly smaller, a Time Machine restore was not possible. I even tried to choose only settings or only my User Profile (option) when restoring, but the backup was still too large to do a restore onto the new machine. How do I restore my more-expensive apps (ie iWorks) onto my new Macbook without repurchasing them? Also, I reaad somewhere that if you went to the Mac App Store and attempted to repurchase the app and clicked BUY, it would simply alert you that you have already purchased the app (and trigger a re-download)... NOT THE CASE... So I just dropped another $19.99 for a second copy of Pages... Not my intention....
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    you should get a usb backup drive as well.  time machine has limited use in my eyes. it saves things. but older things can be errased ad space drops without telling you
    nothing beats data redundancy.  2 saves is. 1.    and 1 is none
    im personally not fond of time machne though i use it only for a recovery parameter for a mac
    id never ever myself consider time machine a genuine data backup tool.  though most do consider it as such
    drive clones such as superduper and carbon copy cloner can clone your entire drive for emergency recovery.  and you can boot from them as well o. another mac

  • My Macbook pro was stolen today-  I need the serial number

    Can this be retrieved by way of iCloud or Time Capsule? AppleCare doesn't CARE at all! Please Help. The Sheriff's Dept can't do anything without the serial number as well. *****!

    Where did you buy it?
    If you know that and/or have a receipt (or can ask for a copy), they usually list the serial number on the purchase receipt (at least at the third party Mac store I've done buiness at). Or, did you register it at the Apple website - you should be able to look it up there. Or, do you have the box it came in - serial number is on the lable.

  • My MacBook Pro was stolen less than a week ago, and I'm not sure if the hard drive was wiped, if it was wiped would I still be able to find it with the findiphone app?

    My MacBook Pro was stolen less than a week ago, and I'm not sure if the hard drive was wiped, if it was wiped would I still be able to find it with the findiphone app? Or would it be untraceable after it was wiped? I had alot of special things on my laptop, and I would hate it if I didn't find it, so I'm hoping it wasn't wiped and I will be able to find it soon, HELP ME IF YOU CAN PLEASE! ANYTHING HELPS!

    If that drive was erased, you should have received a confirmation email.

  • My MacBook Pro was stolen last night. I need the serial number. It is not showing up on my devices list. My iPads and iPhones are. I have used it to to sync my phones and pads as well having it registered with apple. Any thoughts? Thanks

    SIgn in with your Apple ID, the same one you used to access this support forum.
    Hopefully, you will see a list of all the devices you registered with your Apple ID, including their serial numbers. Let me know how this works out.
    Edit to add: If you enabled "find my imac" on your Pro, you ought to be able to remotely lock it, or even wipe its memory. Click http://www.icloud.com/ sign in with your Apple ID and click the big green "find my iPhone" icon (nevermind the name, it will find all your devices provided they're running Lion or iOS 5).
    Then file a police report and nail the b*****d.

  • My Macbook pro was stolen before I had time to register it and I want to inform apple

    My MacBook pro was stolen two days after I purchased it. I did not register my product nor did I have time to set up any tracking software. I still have the box and the registration/Serial Number. How can I inform Apple in hopes that they can help me locate my MacBook?
    Thanks -

    Unfortunately Apple cannot help you track it.
    You say "before I had time to set up tracking software", but a new Mac will specifically ask you, as you're first setting it up, if you want to activate iCloud and Find My Mac. If you answered "yes", you can go to http://icloud.com and track or lock it from there.

  • My MacBook was stolen and I need to know the MAC address

    An emergency question to Apple support. My MacBook was stolen and I need to know the MAC address of its network card. I have a receipt with the serial number of my MacBook. Can you assist?
    My serial: W8***66D
    Thank you
    p.s Any ideas how I can find it?

    Report the theft to your local authorities.
    Apple has no means of tracking thefts, as thieves themselves may claim the machine is theres just by looking up the information on the computer, and unless you registered the machine, it is really their word against yours, unless you also have receipt or other information that they can track to your receipt against your serial number.
    Your homeowners insurance may be able to recoup the cost.
    In the future, consider getting Lapcop, or Lojack for notebooks.
    Good luck!

  • My MacBook Pro was erased and back up on external drive was reloaded.  How do I reload my address book and bookmarks?

    When my MacBook Pro was erased and reloaded, my address book, stickies and bookmarks on all my browsers were gone!  How can I re-load the old contents.  I've looked at all the back-ups.  I find the applications, but not the contents.

    You had two choices:
    1- you save the files from your user library
    2- use icloud which would put them back
    You used neither is seems.

  • My macbook pro was repaired and since then i can't get nor photoshop or bridge to initialize. a window appears that says it has  initializing problems due to an icc profile issue.

    my macbook pro was repaired and since then i can't get nor photoshop cs5 or bridge cs5 to initialize. a window appears that says it has initializing problems due to an icc profile issue.
    there appear two error messages. the first one says that there has been a problem sincronizing because of a programme error. the second one appears after you clicked ok on the first window and says that photoshop couldn't be initialized because the icc profile is invalid.
    does anyone know if i have to delete any system or photoshop preference? the illustrator is also having troubles. thanks

    thanks! what finnally worked better was renaming the «settings» folder in te «color folder» in the library with ~before the name. now indesign is asking me for thw icc profiles but still works, so i asume i can reinstall color settings only for indesign and go on.

  • My USB port on my Macbook Pro stopped working and i tried the SMC reset and the one closest to the SD port still continues to not work. Is there anything i can do besides bringing it in?

    My USB port on my Macbook Pro stopped working and i tried the SMC reset and the one closest to the SD port still continues to not work. Is there anything i can do besides bringing it in?

    I would do another SMC reset. If nothing changes you should take the computer in to an Apple store for a free diagnostic. You should make an appointment.
