    I was wondering can I relocate the mail folder that is in my user library (SSD syst drive) onto the other internal HD on my iMac. I keep most every email and attachments since forever! The SSD is always in need of care of free space, and the other internal is 6TB. So can it be done and will the mail program survive?
    I just like all mail in one place for searching easily.

    I'm not sure it's possible... what I would do is locate the thing that are user controllable as far as storage locations go... the iTunes library, and the Photos library... if those are on the SSD - they can be moved to the other storage easily, and those kinds of files/libraries can be by their nature use lots of storage.

    Thanks Keith. I have relocated the mobile backup file long ago and yes they work fine, in saving space and iTunes as well. They functioned with not ill effects.
    The mail files though.....! I am not keen to trial and error this one as it might get complicated, and to be honest, I'm not even confident about exactly WHICH mail Library files to move, in the same manner as done with iTunes and iOS backups.
