WARNING! This program works as detailed, however, it is important to understand HOW this program works. This program moves your GarageBand files onto an external device, and creates system owned symbolic links in the files' place (which point to your external media) THESE SYMBOLIC LINKS CAN CAUSE INSTALLERS TO CRASH. I had a problem with GarageBand, and had to reinstall, and continually go the error "The install media is invalid." blah blah blah. I thought my disk was scratched. It wasn't. Once I removed (deleted) ALL of the symbolic links on my hard-drive that GarageBand Anywhere created, THEN things started working again properly. So, this program works great, just be careful.

Hi! I've installed this software to use it with I Life 05. But when I try to install Garageband ond my external HD, GarageBand Anywhere tells me "Please insert the disk I Life 05 and try again". The DVD IS inserted in the DVD reader. So, what could be the problem? I have Mac OS X 10.4.11. Thanks for your help. Patrick

I tried to move GB 1.0.1 to my external Lacie HD with your nice app. But if I start GB now it first says something like "error (null)". After trying to fix it GB "can't find soundlibary". But all soundfiles are on the right place (I think). What is wrong? And does it work better with GB 2.0?

Tried to move my Garageband2 to my second drive for media and was in process of moving it when after 15-20 minutes states "Am I out of space on the drive ?" Now I donnot have all my loops available to my Logic Express 7.0.1,Garageband2 works still though. How do I fix this ? Re-install Logic Express and all the many loops I have accumulated ? There must be an easier way ?

David is awesome in his email response. Thanks. For those who haven't read much, like myself, to install the Jam Packs in addition, once the move is complete, just tell the Installer to install on the primary drive and the loops will be installed on your remote automatically. The Alias tricks the Installer, as explained by David. One minor note, the Demo Songs of JP4 did install in the /Users/Shared directory. I don't really care much for demo songs and have since moved the 1.78GB of songs to the remote drive. Finder will ask you for the Admin pass if you wish to do this. I see no reason for the demos to be in a shared directory. I don't believe these songs are accessible via GB unless you specifically open them.

tried ap. and was given a error that says "Any error occured with the file: (null). the error was "couldn't create directory". GarageBand Anywhere can attempt to proceed anyway. any simple fixes.

I tried this to move GB to an external drive. At the end of the lengthy process it told me that there were errors and I can quit/continue. When I got out of the app I had none working GB installation. What is worse - is that now I can't even reinstall GarageBand from the original DVD as the original Apple Installer starts writing files and after 1% says that I should try again... :-( Since I don't feel like taking the Windows way and reinstall the system - the effect is that now on my machine there is no GarageBand at all after trying this nice, little app..

Can you give us a few details about what happens if you try to open a project and your firewire disk is still in your bag, etc? How will GB cope? Also, what's GBA do? Alias? Soft-link? Path alteration in the prefs file? A combination? I suspect it's just a prefs file thing, as this tool is a replacement installer. Hm. Interesting way of doing it.

Great idea but is does not work well. Plus it does not work with images (dmg). I like to use images on another partition to install an application without messing with CDs and DVDs.

Hello, I am David the developer Shortly after its release, version 3.0 had a download issue. The wrong file was put up for download by accident. This could have caused problems for some. If you recieved errors before, I suggest you download the program again and give it annother go. sorry for the inconvenience ~ David Hodge

Hi again I am David the developer. I think its worth note that the new version now supports non-english langauages, allows installation of garageband 1.01, and is verified to work with "Jam Pack" Of note is that when installing "Jam Pack" or any future revisions to GarageBand, tell the installer to install to your boot drive. Because of the links that Dhos_garage placed, the installation will be redirected to the proper location. Software update may not recognize that you have installed garageband and may not try to update it, so you may need to get the installer directly. http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/garageband.html
