I am now within 30GB of maxing out my MBP HD. I have bought an NAS RAID 1 setup which I will be connecting to my router. I would like to move all my images over onto the new external drive, but would like to keep them connected through the previews/thumbnails/albums etc already in Aperture. So basically using the external disk as the main workhorse.

For new images coming in, I was thinking of using the MBP HD only for editing .

On importing from the camera cards I'd like to be able to make and put them in an album/folder etc in Aperture with preview/thumbnails, but send the actual image files to the external disk.

I haven't been able to understand if this is possible or not, so any help with your experience in either how to make this setup or doing something similar/more efficient would be greatly appreciated!
