I have about 7 external hard drives of varying capacities. From time to time, I move files from my MacBook onto those external drives and put Finder aliases where those files used to be. The process usually goes down like this:
- Move file in internal drive to the external drive.
- Hold Cmd + Option and drag the file from external drive to the original location, thereby creating an alias.
Months later I don't recall which file is on what drive. Keeping a note around to write that down is tedious. Is there any app that keeps an inventory of disconnected external hard drives?
