    I think the step that is not mentioned in any of these articles about moving your sample file locations is that first you need to copy the files on your hard drive to the new drive/location by hand.  Then you can open the app and locate or repair the files from the new location.  If I am understanding this correctly, the Spitfire app isn't actually doing the file transfer part of the task for you, correct?

    Hi Richard, 

    Thanks for the feedback. That is correct, the Spitfire App does not do the actual transfer of the content. It will only relocate the content after the transfer has been done so that the plugin knows where to find the sample content for the library. I have updated the article so that it clarifies this!

    I am in the middle of a nightmare situation. The instructions here don't mention anything about a hard drive naming protocol. Maybe they should?

    I am trying to move some Spitfire libraries to a larger drive. I renamed my new drive the same name as my old drive (after renaming it). I then started the Spitfire app and mayhem ensued. I have the new drive in a dock shared with another drive. Somehow while troubleshooting the problems I am having (the locate and repair functions are not working) my other drive got corrupted and had to be reformatted. I have no idea how this happened - in Disk Utility it was being referenced as "Samsung 2TB" - the name of the new drive I am trying to move files to, meanwhile this drive is a Sandisk drive. It seems as if the Spitfire authorization has somehow found a flaw in the dock I am running (an OWC Drive Dock) and corrupted the drive.

    So now not only are my Spitfire libraries broken but I must recover a drive that was not involved at all in the library migration. What a disaster. To think that you have to pay good money for this level of screw up. I still have no idea how I am going to get the Spitfire app to recognize my files as these instructions didn't work. Thanks Spitfire.
