I would like to redirect the "Users" directory to another drive other than the boot drive. I know how to do this on a Windows System but not on a Mac system

The users folder must stay on the system drive, if it is moved the compute will not know where to find it, and it is not possible to tell the computer to look elsewhere.

Just store your files on the other hard drive there is no problems with that.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

No, I'm not interested in moving a directory but, perhaps you might be interested in joining me and a few others in San Diego in June to celebrate having survived 50years after high school. Beer, Mexican food, and nostalgia...

Jim Haas gave me the correct spelling of your name and MI so there's no escape.
