EmonPi - Moving OS to HDD - SSD? or really HDD?

I’m planning a move from MicroSD to USB HDD. I’ve read through the guide on how to do that.

Question is - is a SSD appropriate, or do you really mean a spinny HDD? I have plenty of spinny HDDs around and will happily use one of those if it’s not going to cause a noticeable performance issue.

Hi Keith,

Yes, an SSD will work. Here’s an article about SSD life expectancy:

A rotating media disk drive will work too. Unless you have a drive with very low throughput, performance shouldn’t be an issue.

Thanks, Bill.
