Hey guys. I just got an iMac and did a fresh install of OS-X on a Lacie external Thunderbolt SSD. Nice 'n zippy. I have all of my old data, which includes about 600 GB of photos, onto an external USB drive- it's a time machine backup from my laptop. I want to start clean here, so I'm only interested in the data from my old laptop- not all the software and settings. My plan is to delete everything off of the internal drive, drag my user folder from the SSD to the internal drive, and then drag all my photos and documents from my time machine backup into that user folder. Before I pull the trigger, is there a problem with any of this? Is my user folder just my data and settings, or is there software associated with it that will make my mac run slower? Also, is there any way my SSD could mirror itself periodically onto the internal drive? That way if something happens to it, my computer is still able to boot up without it.
