I’m using a 2010 MacBook that has an SSD and upgraded to 8GB of ram. My friend seems to think that SSD’s perform worse under increased loads so offloading stuff to an external drive should help. Thoughts? Disk utility last time I checked didn’t show anything, I’ll run it again though.
Edit: Attached are some screenshots. It’s weird that the SSD has a “container” or whatnot that shows it nearly full while the HD itself shows 50+gb available. Also shown is the error I get when I run first aid.
