    I recently or i should say a year ago i did a SSD swap in my desktop for OS. And for music and other stuff i did a 2tb hard drive. So i dont have to keep pluging my hard drive into my desktop everytime i want to use it. Going internal is soo much better and SSD on my laptop as well

    Do you find that this works faster?

    If you want an internal drive with the best speed, make sure to use a solid state drive. They are more expensive but have a much faster load time. You can also get a solid state drive as an external drive, but you have to make sure that your USB connection is compatible with the speed necessary to use the optimized drive. Check out this video and you will see the speed difference in the drives:

    Internal is faster and more secure.

    It depends on its purpose of course. Both have (dis)advantages. I have a Synology with a backup to an external drive. For example.
