I replaced my MacBook and I have the Time Machine backups from my old laptop, but I’d like to start the system fresh, importing only the files I really need and re-installing all the programs manually, I’m basically copying and pasting the files I need.
High Sierraare the same version in my old machine and my new one.
My problem is that I can’t find a way to import my pictures from
Time Machine's Photos Library, since
Photos Libraryis not just copy and paste like regular files.
I tried: Copy Photos Library from Time Machine and paste in my new Pictures folder
Didn’t work, even though I opened photos app pressing option and selected the new Library. The following error pops-up:
An error occurred while repairing permissions– which makes no sense, since I was using the same version of Photos before.
I know I could open masters and import JPEGs, but in this way I’ll loose the location/date of my pictures.
