I have a failing external drive with Mac backups as well as my iTunes library, Photos library, and other application files. I purchased a replacement drive recently and am ready to clone the files over to the new drive.
How do I make sure that, after cloning the drive, my applications will read their files from the new drive without me manually having to re-specify the file locations? I.E. not having to manually update the file locations of every song in my iTunes library, or similar actions for other applications.
I'm assuming it's something simple like: making sure the name of the partition on the new drive is the same as the partition of the old drive.
