Sorry for misspelling on title line. It should be --lose not loose. So it used to work just fine. I obviously did something wrong. Retracing my steps as follows: 1. Cloned my original single drive with iTunes and iPhoto data already on it. Clone worked same as original-just fine. 2. Then took new SSD-formatted and partitioned and did clean/hybrid minimal OSX install plus transferred applications, library and home onto new boot drive-about 28GB. 3. Then took larger SSD formatted and made 2 partitions-one for iTunes 160GB and 2nd for iPhoto 80GB. 4. Used drives in external enclosures to test. Could not get any iPhoto picture data to show up after unmounting and iTunes has the content, but after unmounting iTunes (along with iPhoto since on same SSD) all database (album artwork, etc) disappears when I reboot and go back to either Application-iTunes or iPhoto. What did I do wrong? Any Genius that can help on these issues? Thanks in advance.
