  • Disk Permissions should be checked by clicking on First Aid Tab
  • “Repair Disk Permissions” should be selected
  • Verify Disk followed by Repair Disk should be selected
  • Next, MacBook Pro should be shut down. Then it should be restarted by holding the Option Key. Also, the option to boot the recovery disk should be checked
  • Mac OS should be reinstalled
  • The destination disk should be selected as the SSD that is connected
  • When OS is installed, a hard drive should be selected to recover files from it
  • The process will take a long time. You may want to do any other work meanwhile!
