Mid way through a project on MBP 16 - which oddly vibrates sometimes when plugged in.
Called Apple, - they want to send another one out!
It means I need to restore and do the whole thing again..
Midway through an edit though - and all my media is on a SSD external - which I would need to wipe before backing up this machine and restoring the new one.
I did think about backing up media and libraries to the SSD - then backing THAT up to another HDD - then delete the data from the SSD restore new machine - delete it again - and then transfer libraries back to it and hoping its all there!
One option is to make the project into segments and bounce out a master of each one - then its only one file that will not be editable to import into fcpx and put with the same music when the new machine arrives....
When you get the new machine and start it up there is an option for copying all the information, files, applications, etc to the new machine via Ethernet or WiFi. Basically the entire hard drive gets cloned to the new machine.
