    Storing photos and music on a separate drive
    My Macbook Pro has a 120GB which is nearly full mainly due to photos using iPhoto and music using iTunes. Is there a way I can safely copy/archive some of these onto a separate hard drive to free up space?

    I'm not sure what are the right files to copy without messing up iPhoto or iTunes. Many Thanks in advance.

    Specs:
    2010 Macbook Pro, 8g RAM, iPhone 6, iPad Mini, Apple TV
    You can move your iPhoto library like this: iPhoto 8.0 Help: Moving your iPhoto Library folder to a new location

    And your iTunes like this: iTunes for Mac: Moving your iTunes Media folder

    Works like a charm!
