    Hi Guys,

    I'm running a Mac Pro and am seriously running out of space on my main Macintosh HD and was considering putting a new 500GB HD into one of my free bays and using it as a multimedia HD, so my music library for iTunes, all my videos etc. are stored on it, thus reducing the amount of space they take up on my main startup HD.

    Obviously this itself seems pretty simple to set up, I was just wondering if there was a way to redirect the links in finder to the multimedia harddrive. For example, on the multimedia HD I would have a folder for music, much like there is already on my startup HD. Would it possible that in finder when you click the "Music" link in Places on the left hand side, it would go to the music folder on the Multimedia HD, not the Music folder on the Startup HD. I would like to do this for my Music, Movies and Pictures.

    Hopefully I have explained this well enough.

    Just make folders for those items on your new drive, open a Finder window and then drag those folders to the left pane of the Finder window.
