I downloaded Bitcoin-Qt on my Mac. Problem is, all of the data it collects goes to /library/application support on the boot drive. My boot drive is an SSD and does not have a lot of space on it. I would like to change the location of the data to one of my data drives, which are much larger.

How do I do that?

i have a little bash script that i use to launch the app. it is in its own subfolder, with another folder next to that titled Bitcoin.:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
PWD=`dirname "${0}"`
cd "${PWD}"; ./Bitcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Bitcoin-Qt -datadir=./Bitcoin

put that in a file, make it executable and there you have it. hopefully you can figure out how to change the location based on that Smiley
