Question regarding configuration
I have a 27 inch imac mid 2011 it has 1TB hard drive and 12GB ram but I'm soon gonna add a ssd I seen it be done without removing the 1TB. Once it's been fitted I was wondering if there is anyway I could move the os to the SSD and use my 1TB as a place for my files

Depends on a few things.
How much space is the SSD?
- Drop in the SSD
- Clone the 1T unto the SSD removing the big librairies (you can do this with super duper)
- Make the SSD bootable (also done with super duper)
- Remove unwanted files on the 1T so you can reclaim the space.

The SSD will be 256GB what I was going to do was make a partition cutting down the size of the os partition image that partition and put that image on the SSD and then boot from the SSD

If you clone the partition you don't have to shrink it down.
It will copy 1 to 1 to the other disk. Just make sure either:
- That the data on 1T is less than 256G
- Or make sure to remove the big librairies from the cloning part.
