Alt data path

Post by jonassjovaag » Tue May 23, 2017 10:53 am

Hi
After extensive testing I've discovered that altpath on Nebula 4 does not work if the disk is mac-formatted as 'journaled, case-sensitive'. Why is this, adn does anyone know of a workaround?

I want to move my library to this external drive, but as of now the only way would be to convert to case-insensitive by paying for iPartition or formatting. The drive is big, 2TB, with 1.3TB already used and backed up, so it's a hassle to move this amount of data around and I want to avoid this extra work if possible.

You tried symlink?

Yes, but it's a bit unstable.

Confirmed, 'journaled, case-sensitive' is not supported
by engine.
