    Hey everyone, so I have a data doubler and WD Scorpio Black 750 waiting for me at home. I am pretty confident on the installation process, but I'm not so sure of how to go about it after that. I have a stock 256 ssd with applications and the os right now. How do I setup the new hard drive to handle all my media (music, movies etc)? Thank you.

    I would leave the home folder on the ssd as many applications access the library files located in the home folder. Then using symbolic links to put your media files/folders in the hdd.

    Thank you, is there bychance any way to do this without using terminal, or is there any other set of instructions that includes screenshots?
