So I just installed an SSD in my MBP and have been a bit concerned about running out of disk space. I noticed that /private/var/vm holds an 8.6 gb sleepimage file as well as swap files. I'd be much happier if they existed on my old (regular) HDD which is also still inside my machine as well.
I can't think of anything that would really go wrong with this, but can someone tell me whether or not I'll totally screw up my computer by symlinking
/private/var/vm -> /Volumes/OldDrive/private/var/vm?
I read in this superuser post that if the target disk isn't mounted at the time that the swap files are being created, then it could "fake it" (so to speak) and create a directory "/Volumes/OldDrive", forcing my actual drive to be mounted at "/Volumes/OldDrive 1".
