Cool app in theory, i can't get it going yet.

Trying to move my Garage Band application support to an external drive.

when i enter the source and destination directories, and hit "create symbolic link," it just says "ERROR: Please choose a source."

Oh I get it - I had to choose the source through the dialogue, rather than dragging and dropping from the finder as I tend to do with those "choose a file / folder" windows.

Then I had to let Symlinker create the destination directory, rather than creating it myself first and pointing Symlinker there.

Hmm - nope... even launching it via sudo in the terminal refuses to create a symlink in the Application Support folder. It works elsewhere though...

Hi, Quick question for a newbie. I moved a folder called Logic from ~/Library/Application Support to my external Hard Drive.

Now I want Logic to be able to use the the folder I moved to my external hard drive as if it was still on the internal.

I understand that I need to create a symbolic link and wondered, what would be the source and what would be the target?

Thanks!

Late to your question, but for posterity's sake, "source" and "target' would both seem to be the same thing, i.e. the pathname of the actual file or folder. The symbolic link is a virtual copy of it, but with a different name and address (pathname).

That said, very basic questions like this are best googled; usually there is a nice explanation/description at wikipedia for such matters. Neophytes need to develop some level of self discovery in the realm of things technical. It's best for them in the long, intermediate and even short run, doesn't waste others' time, and in this day and age with online resources being legion, and search engines by the dozen, there's no excuse not to do so.

Admittedly it's a learned skill and a learned habit, it is best for everyone concerned.

I was using SymbolicLinker to create symlinks, but it was taking up room in my Services menu (which I try to keep under five items so it doesn't end up as a branched menu). SymLinker does the same job without adding to my Services menu, and the symlink ends up where I want it, so for my needs it's the best option. Thanks to the dev for this!
