Works for Applications
Authored by: gabester on Apr 08, '01 02:58:21AM

I used the tips here to successfully relocate the contents of my Applications folder to another drive.
As root I copied the contents of Applications to their new home, a volume named Apps, located in the path cocoa/Applications (this volume also has directories for carbon and classic programs). I had to make sure the ownerships matched, but I deleted my original /Applications folder, created the symlink, logged out and back in and it all worked. I'd expected maybe the dock icons to lose their touch, but yay, it was all good!
