The distribution of applications and data between the disk SSD and HDD

I recently installed an SSD in my Macbook Pro (late 2011) instead of the DVD player. I want to install OS X on it, by replacing the current OS X on the original hard disk, I will continue to use for storing files. How should I allocate its use in car? OS X and applications on the data files on the hard disk of 500 GB and SSD?


The first series of instructions will partition and format the newly installed SSD disk then install OS X on it. The second block will help you configure OS X on the SSD with your data on the HARD drive.

Clean Install of El Capitan on a new disc

  1. Restart the computer. Immediately after the chime, press Command + Option + R until a globe appears.
  2. The Utility Menu appears in 5 to 20 minutes. Be patient.
  3. Select disk utility, then click on the continue button.
  4. When loading disk utility, select the drive (generally, the entry Out-bumpy) in the list aside.
  5. Click the Partition tab in the main window of disk utility. A panel will fall.
  6. Set the GUID partition scheme.
  7. Define the type of Format Mac OS extended (journaled).
  8. Click on the apply button, then click the fact when it is active.
  9. Quit disk utility and re-enter the Utility Menu.
  10. Select reinstall OS X and click on the continue button.

How to use an SSD with your HARD drive

If you want to use an SSD as boot with your existing HARD disk drive, as the disk 'data', here is what you can do.

After installing the SSD, you need to partition and format the SSD using disc utility disc. Then install OS X on the SSD. Once installed OSX boot from SSD. Startup disk preferences to set up the SSD as the boot volume.

Open the preferences users and groups. Click the lock and authenticate you. Or CTRL - RIGHT click on your username account list in the sidebar and select Advanced Options in the context menu. You will see a field called "Home dir: ' on the far right, you will see an Edit button. Click on it. In the file dialog box, navigate to the location in house now located on the HARD disk (disk HARD/users/user_name /.) Select the folder, click the Open button. Restart the computer, as shown. When the computer starts, it will now use the home located on the HARD drive folder.

Another more technical method involving the Terminal and the alias is discussed in depth here: using OS X with a SSD and HDD - Matt Gemmell configuration. It's my preferred approach because I can choose which records of the House, I want to on the HARD drive and I don't want to. For example, I like to keep Documents and library files on the SSD because I frequently access their content.

Make sure that you keep the bootable system entirely on your HARD drive where you need it.

  • The Msata SSD on HP Pavilion 14-n033TX update

    Hi, I bought my new laptop HP Pavilion 14-n033TX with SSD specified 24 GB cache. I want to upgrade the SSD in drive for windows startup and have more storage for SSDS? The specifications of the SSD I need? m sata, half size or size and what is the maximum size for this? Thank you.

    There are several ways to do so. Several SSD (Samsung for example) is issued with migration software (CD), but you'll need an adapter usb to SATA like that.

    Just connect the external SSD drive with this device and the boot of cloning a disk and follow the prompts to copy. Make sure the SSD you buy is greater than the data currently installed on the old drive. The clone will smoother copies two disks of the same size, but you can resize. Just be careful actual scores of Windows 8 that in some cases if you make them too small, you can't start or system of things like the Windows backup will not work.

    If you have another external drive, you can also do a full Windows system backup and then restore the backup by using a Windows repair disk or OS installation disc.

    Personally, I use Acronis True Image 2014 (older versions will not work with Windows 8).

    The trial version used to work for cloning, but they removed this feature. It costs $50 now; for me is worth I clone a lot of readers, but you probably want something for free.

  • What is the best way and to share data between a server and a Client app?


    I'm trying to communicate a Client-Server application.

    In fact, I already have a simple data transfer via TCP/IP. However, I don't know yet, if TCP/IP is the best (and by that I mean, better, faster, safer, etc.)

    How to do.

    What are the cons and Pros between TCP/IP, STM and shared Variable?

    Do you recommend another type of communication in addition to these 3?

    Thank you


    In my view, that a general question cannot have a response says.

    Then, there is no way 'the best' for sharing data between a client and a server app.

    I like to use TCP/IP, but sometimes (when data loss is not critical) I use UPD (quick and dirty).

    I generally avoid shared variables, especially on embedded devices.

  • Identify the best way to transfer data between applications in Essbase

    Hello Experts,

    One of my clients uses Hyperion System 9.3.1 and they try to understand if the partitioning might be a way to automate the transfer of data between applications Essbase (using the partitioning of replication).

    The challenge, they say, is that they may need to send the budget a source application (SLVQ) data to an application (consolidated) target. Data can be changed in Conso and returned to the SLVQ for review.

    They get warnings when they define partitions in both directions because the partitions are overlapping, but it works.

    Are there concepts or reasons why they should not use this function (transfer in both directions)? Is this something that is used by other companies?

    Their alternative is to export data in text file, then reload with rule files. It seems more difficult to define (MaxL scripts-> text files-> rules of files) with more chances of getting errors. Is there some other effective solutions which we do not understand?

    Please suggest.

    Thanks in advance

    Kind regards

    Hi Lisa,
    other than the scores, text file
    There are two more, according to my knowledge

    1 XREF
    2 HAL (Hyperion Application Link) using adapters essbase

    We use the XREF and HAL to our company to transfer data between applications according to the needs.
    I hope this helps.


  • How to get the Application Build Date and time?

    I am developing application in Cascade.

    What is the API I can use to get the construction Date of the application and Tiime?

  • Online form to allow clients to submit a web application and create "Catégories" and affect one area secure the data provided?

    Is it possible a customer filling out a form with some information, that adds data to a web application - but at the same time it creates 6 x 'categories' and affects an area secure web application that has been submitted (by selecting a drop down current secure areas).

    That's what I'm trying to do.

    I have a client that handles the different places.  They download media THAT PDF reports in British Colombia through media downloads and fix them so only those with the correct secure area members to see.  It is then the client has a web application that lists all of the locations.  Each of them has 6 x sets of unique documents that must be downloaded and read by site.   Currently I have added 6 new categories in the admin settings, then go to the web application and manually add the code for the category of support library code appropriate.

    Ideal process:

    1 / the customer logs on to an online form to create a new location - they fill in a few fields of info (name or location, address, etc.)

    2 / they choose a "Secure Zone" that the location belongs to a loss of worms down

    Form 3 / hidden fields and then creates 6 x new categories and place the ID numbers of the category in the web application for the location

    Think I'm too ask a lot... but you never know?

    HI Mel,

    Don't know how to go about this configuration, create categories of the front-end webapps and secure zone allocation is not something you (as a visitor of a site) can do.

  • Choose the date between December 1 and March 1

    I have a table in which I include the date column and the temperature.

    Now, I want to choose the average temperature per season per year. For the spring until autumn, it's perfectly feasible:

    But what about winter. Winter begins December 1st and ends March 1 of next year. Can someone help me?

    The result in plain language should be:

    Select the year (deducted from 1 December), avg (temp) of weatherdata if date between 01-dec-current_year and 01-March-next_year.

    year - avg (temp)
    2010 - 5 (from December 2010 1 until March 1, 2011)
    2011. 1 of dec 1, 2011 until March 1, 2012)
    2012-3 from December 2012 1 up to March 1, 2013) will be in the future.

    I never suggested to the group only by reference. I geve suggestion you how to calculate the name of season. Of course, you also need this season belongs to which is:

    TO_CHAR (ADD_MONTHS (Datum,-2), 'YYYY')

    select  case to_char(add_months(datum,-2),'Q')
              when '1' then 'Spring'
              when '2' then 'Summer'

    I can't uninstall the application and data source in the list AppWizard (tablespace and a user of the oracle database are deleted).

    You say you deleted the user and the tablespace before removing the application.
    If so you probably have to manually remove the application, an example is available here:- cannot remove the application planning 9.3

  • Help on the passage of data between vi when built in exe


    I have this problem and grateful if someone can give me a heads up the right direction.

    I'm trying to write a program for acquisition of data and control of two instruments simultaneously.

    An instruments is a rotating stage that I control the movement and data read using activex controls. I do this in a vi that I have two distinct time of lines, one for updating the Rotary floor continuous data and other while loop for the handles of event structure.

    The second instrument is a detector that follows the rotation of scene. For this, I have an another vi with two loops for example, for data acquisition hollow rs232 and another while the loop is to the structure of the event.

    I use globals to pass data between the vi and it works very well in a labview project environment. However when I Isaiah to compile these exe files. I can no longer spend data.

    Is there a programming method when you communicate with more than one instrument. What I want to ask is, say I have a function, oscilloscope etc engine generator How can I control them in windows separated (for example, separate programs) and pass data to the other?

    I would be grateful for any help.


    Global variables are not accessible to separate executables because their areas of memory are not shared. This can be found in the following document: If I can use a Global Variable to share data between two executable LabVIEW? The only way to have it working would be to use a main VI that launches your two separate applications like subVIs. This would allow you to share a global variable between the two. Your other option would be to use the method described in the article, or to use shared Variables: How to communicate between several executable LabVIEW using shared Variables?


  • Best approach to serve the same data between multiple users of the POJO DC


    It is a question related to what is the best possible approach for this scenario.

    A POJO domain controller that retrieves a collection (of about 200 folders). The application displays the same records for all users of the application. The collection should be updated from time to time when there are new items and it must be visible to all users in DB.

    Currently, for each user that connects to the DC POJO application runs the query and deliver results. This works well when amount just a few users, but when multiple users want to access the app becomes very expensive.

    I think to build a programatically EO - VO, and then display it in a SharedApplicationModule where through the Cache of BC, I'll save and share data between users. I need to mark make a poll and update the collection when new results come thru.

    Is this a good approach? What are your thoughts or how would be better applied?

    Thank you very much.

    Why do you use a POJO DC at all when the solution is to use a shared Module of Application ADF BC?  Sample 156 will become your friend:


  • Copy data between the custom dimension members or scenario

    Dear Experts,

    I'm back with my silly question.
    Is there anyone know how to copy all the data (not only entity currency) between members in the custom dimension? Our HFM application has a different type of data because the type declaration (legal and audit). Whenever we arrived with our legal data, we copy our legal consolidated data for verification. We tried to create a formula (using hs.exp) to move data from legal to check, but apparently, this formula should be write inside Sub calculate (). Is not supposed, we do not want to run the copy data every time that the user click on calculate.

    We also perform copy data between the scenario, as actual to Budget. This activity also needs all the data consolidated and final.

    So the condition for the copy of data are:
    -data must be consolidated
    -Copy all the data, including the adjustment

    Is there a formula or a way to copy the data that can be triggered individually (click 1 rules that run only copy data) by the user?

    Thank you very much for your kind response,

    Hi Anna,.
    As you say, you cannot trigger different parts of rules to run in HFM. Instead, you use a condition. In your case this condition might be guided by the management of the process. You can use a combination of GetSubmissionPhase, review status , and ReviewStatusUsingPhaseID functions that returns the current process management level and presentation details: phase. To me, it seems that as soon as you have finished legal, you complete a part of your process cycle and enter another stage of verification. Here are the parts of your publishing process, if you have defined a process in HFM management or not, which means that you should consider using it.
