comment Startup disk not correctly identified?
Yes. And that's an ok workaround, I suppose. Still, I'd like to solve why the drive isn't first recognized as 10.10, and shows 10.7 instead.

comment SSD and PPC with Leopard 10.5.8
No problem! I have G4, G5, MacPro, and went thru the migration, G4 to G5 still used PPC, but I had to make the jump to SATA, and move data off quite a few PATA hard drives. The move to MacPro let me keep drives but start to lose software that didn't like the move even under Rosetta.

comment Swapfile and sleepimage file creation?
Over 24hrs and the one swapfile hasn't grown at all. I'll use this advice if/when it does.

comment Swapfile and sleepimage file creation?
Understood. I've been running the OS on the SSD for 3 months, this is the first time I've seen this issue, and 64GB of these swap files seemed strange, not quite a natural thing to expect.

comment Time Machine file structure?
Thank-you. This explains why the whole thing can't copy to another 3TB drive, the copying creates real files, so a copy is truly 4TB, if I got it right.
