On Catalina (10.15) I had created a symbolic link named “com.iwascoding.garagesale9” in “~/Library/Containers/” that linked to a folder named “com.iwascoding.garagesale9” on a different drive to relocate the GS database, which was quickly growing past my Mac’s internal SSD.
This has worked perfectly since.
Now i want to move to another machine with Monterey (12.6), but as i see it, the folder “~/Library/Containers/com.iwascoding.garagesale9” actually appears as “~/Library/Containers/GarageSale” in finder and if i first remove the latter folder, then recreate the symlink “~/Library/Containers/com.iwascoding.garagesale9” with the original target, GS9 won’t even start up or throw an error when attempting to “LOCK” the database.
I’m assuming this is because of the “.com.apple.containermanagerd.metadata.plist” file, and probably related to sandboxing.
@ilja - is there a way to restore the original behaviour i established with the symlink?
