Samsung T5 Portable SSD – 250GB – USB 3.1 External SSD (MU-PA250B/AM) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073H552FK?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
This right here is all you need. No enclosure easy set up, Plug in format and go. Maybe 1 out of 100 games will be unrendered. And it’s on sale. I bout a used one myself for 83 about 2 months ago and havnet had trouble since. https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-T5-Portable-SSD-MU-PA250B/dp/B073H552FK/ref=sr\_1\_3?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1529095775&sr=1-3&keywords=external+Samsung+SSD&refinements=p\_n\_feature\_three\_browse-bin&#37;3A14027458011
I think the problem you were having was that the computers you tried had Hard Drive Disks and what you need is a Solid State Drive which are much quicker. If you still have that laptop it’s a pretty quick fix and SSDs are physically much smaller than HDDs so it would be easy to fit in the same slot. You only need about ~35gb right now for the full blockchain but I’d get 120gb to future proof yourself which shouldn’t be too expensive.
You could also maybe just get an external USB SSD (preferably USB 3.0 which your laptop hopefully supports) and save it there which would be much easier and only slightly slower. I recently bought this Samsung T5 portable SSD which is currently on sale at amazon but if this seems expensive to you then the internal SSD is much cheaper and probably the better option for you.
Good to know, thanks.
Can’t you just install Solidworks in a Windows VM through Virtualbox or VMware Player? That would eliminate the need for your windows partition. Use NTLite or something to create a super slimmed down ISO of windows 7 or something, so it doesn’t take up a ton of space. Since you only need windows for 1 thing, it would make sense to do this.
You could even just store your VM on a small external usb SSD like THIS so it takes up no space at all.
This is what I did to use Xamarin
An external ssd like this would be the best solution.
can’t really beat the performance though, especially when creating content, looking to get similar read/write speeds as the internal ssd.
That’s a good idea, thanks for the tip! This one got really good benchmark scores:
Yes that should work.
Although a Samsung external SSD seems to be ends up cheaper overall.
Can someone confirm this one will work fine on Xbox OG?
