My problem is the following: Im using a 13' rMBP (late 2013) with a 500GB SSD. At the moment this works fine but the ssd is slowly filling up with mostly movies/tv shows. I use a My Passport Pro 4TB (Raid 1 so only 2TB Space) as Backup (Time Machine) and it has plenty of free space. I read a lot about symbolic links and alias but i'm not sure which solution will work the way i want it to work. Alias was easy to do but it doesn't seem to work the way i want it to... Apple seems to have changed a lot in iTunes 11/12 regarding alias and symlinks so i'm not sure which solutions i can trust. Here is what i want: 1. Not giving up the automatic iTunes file managment. 2. Splitting my movies / Tv shows from the whole iTunes Library on my ssd for free space. 3. as a plus the ability to copy movies back, so i can watch them without taking my external drive/internet connection (icloud) Is there a solution? to achieve what i want?
