Adding a second Hard Drive (SSD) to Mac Mini
Apr 11, 2013

Tomorrow I am picking up my brand new 2012 mac mini with a 240 GB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD fitted alongside the internal 1TB Hard Drive. I am also having the 16GB RAM installed. This is all being fitted by the Apple Reseller where I live. It is not being set up as a fusion drive but two separate internal drives. I currently own a 2008 Imac 24 which has all of my Applications on and my photo library stored in Lightroom and iphoto.
I need some advice on whether to use migration assistant between the two to migrate my user settings and applications only or whether I should start from fresh. I have messed up some previous iphoto libraries before and am worried that if I do the wrong thing I will lose it again and this time also lose my Lightroom library.
Once I get it home shall I set it up as a fusion drive (with some guidance and help from any of you) or leave it as two separate drives.
Any guidance greatly appreciated.
