    So, if I install OS X from scratch on the SSD, I can use a Time Machine backup to bring back my files onto the other drive, or just drag and drop my libraries and folders to the HDD?

    Right now it has a 1 TB 5400 RPM hard drive in it. The idea was to add a second drive (a solid state) to replace the disc drive which is never used these days. I suppose it isn't possible to have my...

    If you ask me it could use some improvements as far as how you want to view the order of photos (such as by date in either ascending/descending - I haven't found this option) as well as a "recently...
