I use a laptop for my DAZ, and I am getting low on drive space (again). I am weighing up my options for new storage to add to the machine, and was wondering if I can use an external mass storage device such as a 2TB through USB 2.0? Would this be too slow a connection for installing the Runtimes on? I was thinking about when a scene loads it may get slowed down by the USB connection causing a bottleneck? What do you guys use? The other option would be a Flash drive but that’s going to fill up fast. I do have a spare hard drive bay in the HP laptop but this will likely be an expensive option I think?
If Runtime’s are installed on an external drive, and that drive is say, unplugged from the computer, is there a chance the database in DAZ can be corrupted?
Any help would be appreciated!
