Hardly anyone buys a computer with an HDD / SSD smaller than they need at the time of purchase, but after some time you may need more space to store your things.
Recent MacBooks Air / Pro owners may have noticed that on the side of the machine there is a slot for memory cards – used mainly to transfer photos from cameras to the computer. But today we are launching a product on MM Store that uses this space to increase the machine’s storage capacity.
THE MiniDrive, from Nifty, is a piece of machined aluminum that houses a microSD card and is attached almost flush to the MacBook’s housing. That is, the idea is for you to install it and always leave it there, functioning as a second drive on your machine.
I have such a drive on my MacBook Pro and it was the perfect solution for me, considering it was almost clogging the notebook’s internal SSD. On the SD card I decided to put my entire photo library, but you can use it any way you want.
You can’t even call the whole process “installation”, because you basically just need to fit the MiniDrive to the slot and run to the embrace; it is automatically identified by the Mac and appears as a new drive on the Mesa / Finder. Optionally, you can just open Disk Utility and format it in the same pattern as your Mac’s internal drive (OS X Extended).
At the MM Store, we are initially selling the 64GB version of MiniDrive on models for 13-inch MacBooks Air or MacBooks Pro with 13-inch Retina display. Soon, we will expand to others. ?
