Default Mac OS files to SD card - 04-10-2009, 02:22 AM

I once found a post how to copy all the files directly to the SD card (i.e. office files, etc) but I can't seem to find it now. I know there is some trick that mirrors the folders or something like that,. Basically what I want to do is have the program on my SDD and save all the files on my SD card.

:? just save the files to the SD card then... not quite sure what you are asking.

For example, you create a Word .doc and then save it to the SD card when you save the file.

You are referring to Symbolic Links - like shortcuts, but better. Fools OS into finding System and Library, Documents folders iTunes etc, on the SD card.
There are at least 2 threads on here about it..... ... 122#p24122
