    Switching Internal HDs
    Hi Group,

    I have a Mac Pro with 2x3 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon processors and 16 GB of memory running 10.7.5. I have 4 1 TB internal HDs. I am a photographer and I am not able to download my Session Folders from my shoots because the computer says that there isn't room left on my HD. All of my Session Folders from my various shoots go into Pictures.

    The first HD (Macintosh HD) is the main HD with all of my applications, I assume, since it says Apple-Boot in its description under Recovery HD in the System Report. It says that it has 8.46 GB available. Are

    The second HD is empty and is used as a scratch drive which is used to support the quicker processing of files in Photoshop.

    The third HD is empty.

    The fourth HD is used as storage of folders.

    How can I make the third HD a continuation of Pictures so that I can continue working within Pictures with new Session Folders from my shoots?

    Thanks for your time and patience.

    Brian

    How about just moving the iPhoto Library to that drive?

    Thanks gsahli, but I'm working with Capture 1 Pro and not iPhoto. Brian

    Brian - try what answer/post #5 here says:
    osx - Move &#39ictures', &#39ocuments', 'Movies' etc folders - Ask Different

    It's the one about using symlinks. The previous link I gave mentions this, too.
