Hello everyone, Im hoping I can get some help/suggestions for using an SSD to create a boot drive for my system and applications in my 09 Mac Pro. I know there are a number of posts already on this topic, and I searched through many of them and tried what has been suggested, but despite this I cant seem to get things working! My current setup in the Mac Pro: I have three of the hard drive bays in a RAID 0 and the fourth bay used for Time machine backups. I also have an external drive used just for my iTunes library. I have installed the SSD in the empty optical bay and have tried the following: I did a fresh install of snow leopard on the SSD and then tried to migrate my username, applications, settings over from my RAID. The weird thing was I was not able to bring the above over as my applications folder was listed at 145GB And of course it is only about 8GB. Im not sure why it is showing up as so much? I then tried to just copy and paste my applications folder from my RAID, which did work, but most of the applications did not work properly. Ive read about people just cloning their drive over to the SSD, But my SSD is only 128GB so carbon copy cloner wont let me clone my raid as it is too large. Sorry about the long post on a topic that is covered many times but any help would be much appreciated! When I did boot off the SSD and launched Safari the speed was incredible so I would love to be able to get this working properly.
