    Im thinking about having dual HD's in my mac i plan to have everything on my SSD but movies, music, aperture library, and all media onto the other hard drive. I wanted to know is there a way to sort of redirect finder, for example if i move movies to the HDD then click it in finder it takes me to a folder on the HDD instead with all my movies stored instead of an empty one because iv moved them onto the HDD.

    Hard to explain for me so any help would be appreciated, cheers.

    Samsung 830 is, in my opinion, the most reliable and all around best performer for the price. I think your all set!

    LeGacY X: is your HDD in your Optibay on your 15" MBP a SATA 2.0 or 3.0 drive? My current setup has a SATA 3.0 HDD in the main drive bay, but I want to move it to the Optibay so I can put a SATA 3.0 SSD in the main drive bay.

    The way you worded that says that you are trying to put 3 drives into your MBP.
