I run Logos 7 on a Mac Pro from mid 2010. A year ago I added an SSD to the machine, but my user library is still on a hard drive to save space on the SSD. I would love to force Logos to use the SSD for resources while keeping the rest of my user library on a hard drive.

I tried making an alias for the SSD folder on my hard drive, but when I boot Logos it starts making a new folder on the hard drive.

Has anyone successfully done something like this?

Does the OSX section in https://wiki.logos.com/Install_in_different_folder_or_drive help with this?

You need to use a Symbolic Link instead of an alias. It's a little more difficult to set up. Here is a pretty good tutorial: http://osxdaily.com/2015/08/06/make-symbolic-links-command-line-mac-os-x/ 

One tip I'd add is that you can drag and drop folders into the terminal and it will automatically fill out the file path for you. Much easier than typing it in.

Here is how my command to set this up on my system looked:

ln -s /Volumes/MBP Valet/Logos Data/Logos4 /Users/Levi/Library/Application Support

Note that I created a folder on my partition to put the Logos4 folder in. You don't have to do that, I just wanted it to look a bit more organized.

Thank you, gentlemen. Works like a charm.
