    hi all,
    as headline says I was wondering what type of usb hdd or flash drive would you guys recommend to use with the switch on sx os 2.02.

    I have a 1tb drive taken from a ps4 pro and wonder could I use that with the right hdd enclosure or could i use a 2tb flash drive?

    a Y. you go by pronunciation ("why") not just "it's a vowel"

    you could use a Y usb cable

    you could use a self powered usb hdd

    you could use a self powered usb hub, so it provides extra power to feed the usb hdd

    im using a 1tb WD passport, no Y cable needed, works fine, exFat, xci to root, on 5.1 fw, works great, tad slower than SD but for space vs cost of huge sd cards, im happy
