I have two folders on two different Volumes:
In the second folder I put large files and folders so they do not take up all the space on the SSD. In order to have everything in one place I create symlinks from the first to the second folder, like so:
/Volumes/SSD/my-important-folder/big-file is a symlink to
This is useful because big files get stored on the HDD yet they are available as if they were stored on the SSD. But this has the disadvantage that I have to create a symlink for every file oder folder that I add to the folder on HDD.
It would be really useful if I could say to the OS: if I call a file that is not in
/Volumes/SSD/my-important-folder, please look it up in
The folder on the HDD would then be a real extension of the folder on the SSD.
Can this be done? I am running OS X 10.9.1
