I'm considering replacing the drive in my MBP with an SSD. However, this process will take me from 500gb down to 120gb, so I have to be much more discerning about how I use space. I have already moved all the media off of my comp, but now I'm wondering if I could move some applications onto an external drive? An example would be moving most of the Adobe suite (I only use it rarely) off to an external - would it still be usable when I connected it, or would I have to copy it back to the applications folder on the SSD? I also know this would be a problem in Windows if the drive letters got mixed up or anything (in the case of more than one connected drive), but am not sure how this would work in Lion. Thoughts? Merry Christmas!
