    I have a 27" iMac that I bought in February. Last night I installed an SSD into the Optical Drive slot and now the weirdest thing is happening.

    I have OS X installed on the drive, and it boots no problem, but, oddly, anything I do isn't saved on shutdown.

    Example:
    Example 2:
    It's like it's reverting back to some random version of the OS o_O; I don't have anything like Deep Freeze running, though, nor is this drive set up for Time Machine. It has my MobileMe freaking the heck out too, it keeps saying it needs to rebuild x, y, or z when I log in. Really weird!!

    I've repaired disk and permissions I... I've got nothing. This is so weird!

    Wow, really a stumper, eh? Well I'm reinstalling the OS to see if that helps >.x

    This is like the OS is just forgetting it's there.

    Drag/download something big onto the harddrive, maybe 5GB, and check the HDD available before and after you do that. Then do a restart, and see if the available storage has changed. Tell us the results please.

    I have since reinstalled the OS, however I do recall downloading something about that size the first time I had thought it fixed. I waited until it had finished, then restarted the OS and it reverted as if I'd never downloaded the thing in the first place. I didn't think to check the HDD usage though. What sort of problem are you thinking towards?
