how to Migrating to iCloud from mobileMe ?
If you were previously a MobileMe subscriber, as part of the process of enabling iCloud on your Mac, Lion will detect your active MobileMe account and prompt you to begin the migration of your MobileMe data to iCloud. As noted earlier in this chapter, not all of the services that you enjoyed with MobileMe will survive the migration. However, MobileMe services will remain active through June 30, 2012, so services that aren’t in direct conflict with iCloud, such as iWeb site hosting, the MobileMe photo Gallery, and the contents of your iDisk, will remain active and available until the MobileMe end date.
Although I know literally dozens of people who have made the migration from MobileMe to iCloud with no problems, there’s no guarantee that you’II also be one of them. Therefore, my advice is simple and clear: make sure that you have a complete backup of all you data on both your Mac and your iOS devices before you move to iCloud. Let me repeat that: have at least one good backup of every bit of your data before you start your iCloud migration. It doesn’t matter if you use Apple’s Time Machine, or Shirt Pocket’s SuperDuper, or any other backup program, as long as you have a solid backup that won’t be affected as soon as you convert to iCoud. Because I’m a stickler for backups, I made sure to update all three of my regular backup systems (yes, Offce use three entirely separate backup programs; yes, I know I’m a freak) immediately before I clicked the Get Started button with my MobileMe to iCloud migration.
To migrate to iCloud from MobileMe:
1.From the Apple menu, choose System preferences.
2.Click the iCloud icon. The Icloud preference pane appears.
3. Enter your Apple ID and password, then click Sign In.
4.icloud will offer to begin the migration
Safari will launch and begin the migration .
6.Click Get Started.
The website will show you three informational screens that explain how your mailing calendars will be moved from MobileMe to iCloud; how you’II still be able to use Gallery, iDisk, and iWeb publishing; and which MobileMe features will no longer be available. Finally, you’II get to a screen that says “Now, upgrade your devices for icloud.”
7.lect the “all of the devices I want to use the iCloud are now running the required software” checkbox, then click Next.
Another couple of informational screens will appear, reminding you to have up-to-date contacts and bookmarks on one of your devices and to back up your contacts, calendars, and book marks before moving. Click Next to move through each of the screens, until you get to the iCloud Terms of Service.
8.lect the “I agree to the iCloud Terms of Service” checkbox, then click Move to icloud.
One or more screens may appear in your browser informing you of progress in moving your data from MobileMe to iCloud. The final informational screen in your browser informs you that you will be getting alerts on your Windows PCs F. The screen will show you what the alerts on each of those devices will look like.
9.ick Finished Setting Up.
It’s possible that iCal will open and begin upgrading your calendars. If it doesn’t, you should open it manually and allow it to upgrade the calendar data (you should open iCal at least once even if you use a third-party calendar program such as BusyMac’s BusyCal, since almost all other calendar programs use iCal’s data).
The iCluod preference pane should open by itself. If it does not, open it manually from system preferences.
10.the iCoud preference pane, select the checkbox next to each service you want to use in iCloud . If you have more than one Mac, repeat step 10 for each computer. Ideally, you want to enable the same services on every computer.
Icloud is Master of your Data
In any situation where you’re synchronizing data between different devices, there needs to be one master data set (also sometimes known as the canonical data). With MobileMe, if there was a conflict between the local copy of the data and the copy on the online service, sometimes you would get a dialog that would ask you which version of the data (on your Mac or on MobileMe) was correct, and you could choose which one to use. Not so with iCloud, which considers itself to always be the canonical data. You can even have situations (for example, if you have some duplicated calendar events) where you can delete all the events on your local machine, yet when you sync with icloud, all those events will reappear. Sometimes, the solution is to turn off icloud syncing on all your devices, then turn them on one by one until you get a clean set of data on all devices.
