I upgraded my MacBook Pro to High Sierra, but now my Logic 9

Customer Question

Hi! I upgraded my MacBook Pro to High Sierra, but now my Logic 9 does not work. (I should have checked!) Now I need to downgrade to an older MacOS to access my content. I have downloaded El Capitan and installed it on an external USB drive. I can boot from that, but then I do not see my data on the MacBook--only the new identity on the external drive. How do I boot from the external drive but still see all my internal data?

YOu can't you have to install Logic on your external drive then transfer your files to the new drive in the same location Music / Logic.
