Hello,

Is there a way to make things installed through playonmac install to an external drive since games like World of Tanks is to large too fit on my Mac's internal drive. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You can, but it is unsupported. You would want to create a symlink to another drive with the space for it. NTFS drives are not supported, as they can cause issues. Well, at least as far as I know right now. 

There are a couple of people on here that actually have a short method of doing this, though I do not remember off of the top of my head. I am sure that they will chime in shortly, as it has been asked before. 

You can also search the forums to see if you can find the threads/posts regarding this subject.

A wiki is being worked on, I suppose that's the kind of information that should be migrated there at some point...
