Enable AirDrop Legacy Mode To Share With Older Macs For All Users On OS X Yosemite 10.10.

Here is a neat little terminal command to allow AirDrop to work with older macs inside of an AirDrop Finder window. This script shows how to enable it for all users via the default template, but you can modify it for existing users as well.

## Enable legacy mode for airdrop. ##
defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sharingd LegacyModeEnabled -bool true
defaults write /var/ladmin/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sharingd LegacyModeEnabled -bool true
