Can anyone help moving Application Support files to external HDD on a Mac?

Hi everyone,

I would like to move some of my application support files in library over to my external hard drive to free up some space (without affecting the application itself).

In particular, I would like to move this folder: /Users/[myname]/Library/Application\ Support/OpenEmu

...into this folder...

/Volumes/G-DRIVE\ mobile/Applications/Support\ Files

The actual app in this case is stored externally at /Volumes/G-DRIVE\ mobile/Applications/OpenEmu.app

I know you can somehow do this via terminal and I've tried to follow some instructions but to no avail. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Can anyone walk me through it?

I'm running MacOS High Sierra on a Late 2016 Macbook Pro.

Cheers,

D
