My first post here so hi everyone! I have just bought a new mid-2011 Mac Mini Server to replace my aging late-2006 Core-2-Duo iMac. The Mini is running M.L. (Server but I won't be using that aspect for now, if ever). My iMac is on S.L. I have 2 questions: 1. My research, including searching this forum, suggests that the best way to transfer to the new machine is to install all applications and plugins etc. from scratch rather than use Migration Assistant or any other similar method. (It's too late for Setup Assistant as I've already started up the Mini.) I could then use M.A. or manual file transfer to move all my data. This will be a long haul but worth it as I'd rather not transfer all the superfluous apps and files as well as any problems that may have built up over the years. Also to avoid any compatability issues between the two OS's and computers. I'd like to end up with a clean and fresh install as far as possible. Am I correct in taking this approach? 2. The Mini has 2 internal 7200 drives, one of my reasons for buying it. I use a 3-drive system with Logic, i.e. separate drives for the system and applications, sample libraries and audio recordings. With the Mini I intend to use my external G-Drive hooked up through firewire as the 3rd drive. I will daisy-chain it with my Metric Halo interface. Would it be best to put the sample libraries on the 2nd internal drive and record audio to the external, or the other way round, i.e. samples on the external and audio on the 2nd internal, or does it make any difference? When I ran Logic on a PC many years ago when Emagic owned it, I had just 2 internals and used the 2nd drive to record audio only, everything else including samples on the system drive. Worked a treat but then everything was much smaller in those days.. I'd appreciate any thoughts or advice. Thanks.
