Today my new MacBook Pro was delivered, and before I migrate my data I would like to have some advice from this community on how to format the disks for best use with Aperture.

 

Fresh out of the box the system drive (500 GB SSD) and the second internal disk (1 TB) are both formatted MacOS Extended (Journaled). Would there be any advantage in changing that to MacOS Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled) while the disks are still empty?

 

I will use that MBP mainly for fun - maintaining my Aperture Library, making music with GarageBand, maintaining the iTunes Library, creating movies with iMovie, QuartzComposer and PovRay, and programming. Unfortunately all my hobbies need a lot of disk space and processing power, so additional advice would be appreciated on how to get the best profit out of my 500 GB SSD.

 

 

Regards

 

Léonie
