I just installed an optibay and am running an SSD/HD setup in my 2011 MBP. I did a clean install of Lion. I found instructions online how to create a Symlink, which I'm trying with my Downloads folder. For some reason after I think I've created it, it doesn't seem to work. In Chrome when I go to download a file I get prompted with a dialog on where to save it rather than I automatically downloading to my Downloads folder. After a couple of tries, Chrome is now crashing anytime I try to download something. Here is what I did in Terminal sudo rm -rf ~/Downloads/ (after typing in my password the folder was deleted) and then ln -s /Volumes/HD_Bigness/Downloads/ ~/Downloads This created what looks to be an alias in my home director called "Downloads" but from what I've read this is what it should look like. Any advice on what I'm doing wrong? Separate but related question is that when I went to put a shortcut in the finder to the new Downloads folder, the icon in the Favorites section is just a folder, not the standard Download icon. I changed the icon for the folder using Get Info, but it doesn't seem to impact the Finder's smaller icon. Is there a way to fix that?
