Thread: Home Folder External Drive
10-07-2008, 02:36 PM #1Home Folder External Drive
I hope someone can help,
I have my home folder redirected to an external drive as I had outgrown my 250gb internal disk. This worked fine until recently when each time my mac restarts it appends the external mount point with a 1 and then my profile is all messed up.
I used the following to fix it each time but now its become a pain in the ***.
Duplicate mount point in /Volumes after unexpected restart
Can anyone help me find a way to fix it for good and show me a better way of doing things?
My imac is intel running leopard and my drive is a maxtor one touch4.

Sure, that's easy to resolve. Buy a new hard drive. No reason to do what you did and risk losing data when hard drives are inexpensive and can be replaced.

i was going to avoid upgrading the internal drive as it was cheaper to buy an external.
I was already considering this though as I am very worried about losing stuff alright.
