Hi there, sorry if this has been asked before but I've trolled the internet looking for an answer and all I've found is in regards to PlayOnLinux and as I'm using PlayOnMac, these instructions haven't been overly helpful to me. So my question is: is it possible to have a virtual drive installed on an HDD? For instance, I want a Steam library on my external drive because my home drive hasn't nearly enough space for this. Thanks in advance.

OSX: High Sierra

PlayOnMac Version: 4.2.12

Okay so I've figured out how to create a Steam Library on an external HDD but now whenever I try to download something, I get an error stating "content file locked". Any ideas on a solution?

move your PlayOnMac folder to your external drive and make a symbolic link

your PlayOnMac folder is in ~/Library

example your external drive called EXTERNAL

open terminal

move the folder to external drive with

mv ~/Library/PlayOnMac /Volumes/EXTERNAL/PlayOnMac

make a symbolic link with

ln -s /Volumes/EXTERNAL/PlayOnMac ~/Library/PlayOnMac
