I have two drives in my machine:
- An SSD with the OS on it
- a HDD with all my data.
I have a symlink on the SSD for my home directory on the HDD so
/Volumes/SSD/Users/Ross/ points to
/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/Ross. The
Macintosh HD drive is the original boot disk. I'm trying to get rid of the space in the volume name, but when I do I get all kinds of errors. I thought it was a simple as updating the symlink but it doesn't seem to be.
I tried just option-clicking the drive and renaming, which worked but I started to get a lot of application errors. For example, Terminal won't even open. Also, a lot of the Ruby gem installers don't handle spaces well.
