    Hi everyone,

    I've recently merged a couple of volumes and I would like to know how to mount the following folder:
    /Volumes/Disk_Data_1/Disk_Data_2
    into
    /Volumes/Disk_Data_2

    What kind of symlink trickery should I use so OS X sees the "Disk_Data_2" directory as a volume? (re-partitioning my drive is not an option)

    thanks for your help

    I don't think OS X can do that. If it's really necessary, you might create a disk image of that folder and mount it. Otherwise, the best thing to do it copy those files to an actual volume or partition of their own. You said repartitioning is not an option, but it's always an option. There is also the option of a larger disk, or an external disk.
