    Install on external hard drive
    I'm really excited about logic 9 ( I'm going to buy it this weekend) but I have one question?? I want to install it on my 1TB Western Digital hard drive, can I put my current logic 8 folder on the new hard drive then just install 9 ??? I guess I'm not really sure how to do this and make everything work right, so any help would be appreciated. eqt. Macbook pro 2.4 GHz/ Apogee Duet

    Re: Install on external hard drive...
    Hi Jex, For all the pro apps (and most Mac apps) you must install the actual application on your Bootup disk (e.g. the internal HD on your Mac that runs OSX). I would leave the Logic 8 application in it's current location. You can choose to install the extra content on an external drive using the Installation app on the DVD. In the Logic Box is an Installation booklet. I'd recommend reading through it before you begin installation. I upgraded from 8 to 9 and the process was very smooth. It only took an extra 2 GB as it didn't overwrite existing sampler instruments and apple loops that were already on my system, but it did add the Voice Jam Pack and new applications (Mainstage 2, Logic 9 etc). Bear in mind the installation will rename your old Logic.app to Logic 8 - and this can co-exist happily in your applications folder with Logic 9. HTH Rounik btw, you require OSX 10.5.7 to be able to run Logic Pro 9. There's more info here: [url]http://www.apple.com/uk/logicstudio/specs/[/url]

    Thank you for the help!! I installed onto my internal hard drive, and I'm moving all project files to external. Dose anyone have any ideas on how I can safely clean up my hard drive to free up space?
