View Full Version : Moving Movie folder?

11th May 2010, 08:33 PM
Is it possible to move the Movie Folder/directory in your home folder to an external drive. Occasionally if I am not paying attention and have downloaded a lot without moving stuff around I end up with the disk is full error and basically system dies.

I have a separate partition which I have all my music on and wondering if there is a way to either move the file or maybe redirect it to the other partition.

I have all my media files on an external drive, and have just set up an alias from the movies folder in my home directory to the movies folder on my external drive.

Time to ask a stupid question... How do I set up an alias.. I know it's a noob question but never done it before.

Right click on the folder you want to make an alias of. Choose Make Alias. Drag the newly created alias folder to the destination location.
