Working with Aliases

I am about to transfer all my sample libraries to a 3rd designated harddrive.

It will be a bit of a hassle to redirect so that everything points directly to the new files, and in a previous topic aliases was mentioned as a solution.

When using an alias, does it have any performance drawbacks at all?

For example my current Battery 3 library would have an alias in its current folder on the system drive, pointing to the new location on the 3rd harddrive.

Anyone has experience of this? Advice is much appreciated!

it shouldn't be a problem, or change performance as all it does it change the path of the samples.

When the system harddrive is clean of all those samples, is it necessary/desirable to do some kind of "deep" cleanup. (Using OSX 10.4.10 on a dual PPC 2.7)

If so, how to do it?
