In Mountain Lion I had a nice little system going between my SSD and HDD. I created symbolic links for my Documents, Pictures, Movies, Music, Downloads folders and it worked perfectly. However in Mavericks it looks like you're not allowed to delete these folders and replace them anymore... "Downloads" can't be modified or deleted because it's required by OS X. Bummer. I'll look into it some more tomorrow to see if there's a workaround, but if anyone's already tackled this issue, do let me know. P.S. Would really rather not split my user folder locations via the hidden option. Tried it before and it had too many issues and annoyances. ---------- Follow up thought... I could probably hit the normal folders with a chflags hidden Terminal command and then fill the Home directory and Finder sidebar with the symbolic links, although this would be a somewhat clumsier solution than what I had going in Mountain Lion. It would be awkward when apps that default to the Documents folder settle on an empty folder.
