2. Make sure you have it so it will always be mounted when AF launches
3. run
4. Then edit the following line to include the path to where you want to keep the database by replacing the “/Volumes/Some Drive/Some Folder” part.
defaults write com.icedaudio.audiofinder “MetadataDatabasePath” -string “/Volumes/Some Drive/Some Folder”
