    Hi, i just got my brand new MBP and i easily installed and formatted my data doubler this morning. My question is in regards to my itunes library. I have a 128 ssd in main bay and i want to keep itunes (app) on there but have my music and movies on my data doubler. 1. Is this possible, and 2. how exactly do i do this.


    Thanks in advance i really appreciate it!

    Create a new Folder in the data doubler. Copy the iTunes data (music, movies, etc.) to the new folder in the data doubler. Then have iTunes point to the data doubler for all your iTunes media.

    Just move your home folder to the DD. That will automatically keep OSX and apps on the SSD, and data (music, movies, downloads, etc) on the DD. It's much more automatic than worrying about individual folders of stuff.

    How-to link.
