Minor question about load times with an external hard drive



  • Hey fellas, I've just been playing around with using a HDD to store around 200gb of games. I'm expecting this to take some time to boot to ES and I was wondering what I could do to reduce this... First of all, would having the file system of the HDD as ntfs increase speed? Would using an alternate board such as the Xu4 make it boot quicker? Just tried on a Pi3 and it took a good 3 minutes to boot. I know this is a bit of a weird question but I'm just trying to see what can be done besides removing all the games! Thanks guys love this project so much
