I read you Move or Rename home folder thread and I have a different question. How does one set up a smaller SSD drive when the home folder is bigger than the SS?
Would installing a new system on the SSD and setting up a user with the same shortname then select an existing home folder work? I would need to migrate my Applications, which will fit on a 250 SSD, but my current boot drive is an 8T raid, no way I can import my Users.
