Hi, I’m still waiting on my Seagate 4TB external drive to plot (3 days 50%, xplotter i5 5600 npm). Looks like I jumped into this without doing enough reading. So my questions are:
*what specs make best drive: Sata vs usb, higher rpm, more cache, SSD (price/reliability)
*best method to plot: use best internal drive, copy to external usb drives for mining, plot full disk size or say 500GB chunks at a time
Just looking for other people’s ideas/experiences. Will try Turbo Plotter on other drives once I get started.
