External SSD For XP11?

Recommended Posts

Hi: I am rapidly running out of space on my internal SSD that I have been using for XP11...Can anyone recommend an external SSD that would be fast enough (and large enough!) for XP11? Thanks a lot!

I think that an external SSD will be slower than an internal SSD.

Try to add an internal SSD if your rig allows to.

An external ssd would be fine for this use case. Make sure it has a USB 3.0 or 3.1 connection. I would stick with the Samsung's they tend to have the best performance and reliability.

I run my entire X-Plane installation from an external Samsung T5 (512 GB), so that I can use it on both my desktop and laptop PCs. Loading speeds are fine and I'm not seeing much stutter when loading new tiles in flight, despite running HD mesh.

I use an external 4tb usb drive for my scenery. Works a dream.
