Question: Installing OSX on external SSD and running Logic PRO from it
I own an imac, 21 inch screen, late 2012 model. I plan to install OSX Sierra on an external SSD I recently purchased(it's a samsung T3 that I'll be connecting using USB 3). I would like to use the new SSD as my start up drive, and use my old HD for storage.
So, having watched many tutorials, I'm very clear on the process of doing the install, and changing the start up to my new SSD. What I'm not clear on is how to get all my apps that aren't automatically installed in sierra migrated over to the new SSD, as well as if there's anything I need to do to my old HD to continue using it as storage.
Here are my questions -
1) Once I've started up my computer for the first time with new new SSD as the startup drive, can I simply go to my app that are still sitting in my old HD and drag them over to the new drive? Specifically, Logic PRO X, Adobe Illustrator?
2) Is there anything I need to do to my old HD to make it function properly as a storage drive? My plan is to have audio plugins I use for Logic installed and stored on that drive, but I'm worried that if Logic is no longer stored there, it will create in issue with finding said plug ins.
