    Moving Logic related files to an external drive
    I have recently bought Logic Pro Studio and installed it, not knowing that it would take so much of my hard drive space. I would like to keep the Applications in my internal drive but put all of the extra content (Jam Packs, Demo Songs, Audio files, etcâ¦) in my external drive. Where can I find these files? Where and how should I put them on the external? Please reply Thanks,

    Hi, 49 GB is a lot! Take a look in: HD/Library/Audio/Apple Loops There are about 27GB of apple loops there. But, if you move them to an external drive you should read this thread on reindexing your loops: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/forum/logic/logic-pro-express&id=7914&sid=#7920[/url] To move these files, simply copy them to an external drive and delete the originals. You may wish to create an alias of the folder to place in the original location too! Cheers Rounik

    Thank you for your quick reply. I will also move the demo songs to an external drive. Is there anything else that I should move to another drive? Thanks again, Kenny Q

    Hello Recording, What version of Logic are you using? 8 or 9? Also, I should mention the application files (Logic, Mainstage, STP2/3 etc) MUST stay on your system drive in the Applications folder. There are many other files (e.g. Apple Loops, Sampler Instruments, etc) which can be moved or relocated to an external drive. Please read the other posts in this thread carefully and follow the links if necessary. If this still doesn't help do let me know where you are stuck. Thanks Rounik
