secondary HDD to run alongside install HDD for data

Recommended Posts

Hi does anyone know how to setup another hard drive to store data and apps so i can keep my osx hdd free of clutter and speed it up, such as when you install an app it installs onto the secondary hard drive or download something from safari it automatically goes to that HDD i know how to do it on windows but not osx :(

Anyone help?

Yes you can use a extra harddrive and formated as mac and use it for data and other stuff.

1-You can connect a extra hard drive to the motherboard

And at the diskutility formated as mac partition

And name it DATA or FILES or what ever name you

Prefer .and just use it for data/backups/music/movies/Etc..

2-You can format or resize the Hard drive you have mac installed on

And resize it to the size you want or need for extra files.

Also if you use a torrent downloader or browsers.set them to

Download and put the downloaded files to the extra drive.

Because most all the time they are just goin to download the

Files straight where the Os is Install at.

One easy way also: JUST BUY OR USE A EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE.and you it for Data :)

40Gb i Think is Too Little For you to Resize..if You plan to get movies/torrents/Music/etc

I think you need a bigger Hard drive.
