I've just a bought Mac mini with a fairly small SSD.  I'm having to be quite specific with what I keep in the main drive.  Is it possible to keep the main Accordance app on the primary drive and the tools (modules) on a permanently fixed external drive.  It's not my main work machine, I have a MacBook Pro and iMac at the church office.

One way is to use the user manager in Mac OSX and assign the home directory of the user to the external drive. That way, all of the user's data will be kept in the external drive.


I believe it will be under advanced. It is advisible to create or leave an admin account on the internal drive in case you need to boot up with no external drive. Other than that all other users can be on the external drive.
