View Full Version : Deleting com.apple.bootstamps and com.apple.corestorage after migrating primary HDD's

Mar 2, 2013, 03:57 PM

I bought a SSD drive for my MacPro3,1 and am running Mountain Lion. On my old primary I manually deleted everything to trash and then emptied it except for locked items. It all went fine except it left a System-Library-Caches folder on my old primary that contains two folders, com.apple.bootstamps and com.apple.corestorage.

I noticed their date modifieds are today whereas on my new primary ssd drive they have the dates of when I installed the ssd. Deleting them off the old primary only leads to them being re-created on reboot.

Is there a way to make OSX look or re-create them on my new primary?

I would like to take the old primary out but my setup makes it a pain to get to the computer in a physical means so I thought I would ask here first. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I should mention that I didn't feel like I was getting the speed from the ssd that I should and I could tell that it was still using library files from my old primary. I've just downloaded the blackmagic speed test and when I try to run it on the ssd it gives me an error that it is read only (wtf?). It's a Samsung 830, TRIM not enabled, factory firmware. It's run "fine" since I installed but I just never have felt the speed, hence my reason for wanting to get completely off the old primary. Please throw out suggestions!!

Thought I would write back that taking out the old primary drive and booting worked just fine. Put back in the old primary and was able to delete the leftover folders with no warnings.

Also, the speed for SSD was fixed by putting the PCI card in slot 2 - it had been in slot 3.

All humming along nicely now.
