I installed a SSD inplace of my Mac HD. Moved the Mac HD to the superdrive bay.
I have the OSX operating system on the SSD and my home folder on the Mac HD.
I used system preference to point the operating system to the new home folder location.
Everything seemed to be OK untill I started looking deeper.
In Aperture I was able to open all of my libraries. Everyting looked ok. Testing further thought I discovered that I can't create a new library or export versions.
In mail I can't attach files.
I also can't log onto this forum. I know the username and passowrd are correct. Even before this I could never sign in on another device. So I doubt this is related to my self inflicted issues.
I have deleted plist, ran some mainetence items with ONYX, and repaired permissions. No joy from any of those attempts.
I created another user and Apple ID ( that's how I got back on here) .
Using the new user every issue seems to be resolved.
Because things are ok with the second user I am thinking a re-install ( Mtn Lion or Aperture ) may not help. That was going to be my next move.
I could move my home folder back to the startup volume, but the Aperture libraries would be too large to fit, even though the libraries are referenced I seem to have a lot of GB for each library, like 35 GB for 10,000 pictures. My thumbnails are set to very near max quality and the resolution is more than 1920 x 1080. ( I am not sure right now what my 27 " Cinema Display is )
If I were to move the Aperture libraries out of the home folder first, then relocate the home folder back to the SSD, would I be able to access them if they are outside the normal structure?
