Samsung T5 1TB External USB Type C Portable Solid State Drive
A:AnswerI am using one on a 2019 iMac 27" (w/256GB SDD internal) as an external 1TB for storage and on a 2017 iMac 21.5" as an external SSD boot disk in lieu of the 1TB internal Fusion. Both are running Catalina. No problems with either.
A:AnswerI use this for my entire catalog of photos in Lightroom and there is only about half the drive space taken up. Not sure how many photos you're talking about and being a non static number for the size, as every photo is different, then it it hard to say if 1TB will store all your photos. I can tell you I have 230,000 and most are taken in a RAW format by the camera and those are the ones I have on this drive that is now half full. You can also connect this to your Dell desktop without worry. I myself have a Dell and I use it regularly with this drive. You plug it into your USB port on the computer and you should see it in your file manager very shortly after that. (takes a few moment s to read and or set itself up). Hope everything works out for you and you get the storage space you need.
A:AnswerYes it can. Use the appropriate cable (supplied with ssd) that has the physical connector for the usb 2.0 port.
You won’t get the speed out of the drive because the usb 2.0 port will essentially choke. The ssd is orders of magnitude faster in data throughput than a usb 2 port.
So it may be an expensive solution as compared to a regular external HD. However, it will be more reliable than a regular HD and also be somewhat future proof when you upgrade to a usb 3.xx port with faster data throughput. It is also smaller and lighter with all-metal construction compared to most 2.5 in external bus powered HDs.
A:AnswerI downloaded the app that came with the drive, (Samsung Portable SSD) and its pretty straightforward. You plug the SSD in, launch the app, and hit the update button within the app. It should update within a couple seconds.
