I have two disks in my MBP. One is small SSD for the OS and applications, and the other is slow HDD for my HOME folder, downloads and stuff like that.
I have Time Machine set up. Everything seems to be backed up smoothly. I have changed location of my user dir in the Settings -> Users&Groups. Also I have created a symlink
/Users/sergio that points to
/Volumes/MacintoshHD/Users/sergio (where actual data lives).
I tried restoring from this backup, the user gets created in the process, but I can't login. Probably because it's another machine which has only one disk.
What I was expecting (I don't know why) is that restoration process would walk that symlink in
/Users and "dereference" my user dir onto system disk. Apparently, it doesn't do that.
Did anyone try restoring a backup with similar setup? Is it even possible? If it isn't, I might as well stop backing up :)
