My laptop is running out of disk space. Mostly because of photos, (my Photos library is 180GB on a 512GB SSD, plus I have photos taken with the “big” camera outside of the Photos library).
I want to keep “download originals” on for the Photos library so my photos are backed up to Time Machine & Backblaze. I also don’t want to be permanently attached to some external drives as I like to use my laptop as a laptop out of the house sometimes.
So other than TJ’s laptop expansion from MPU #515 what are my options?
I’ve thought about putting the Photos library on an external drive, but:
- if I do that what happens when that drive isn’t attached and the computer tries to download photos that I took on my phone?
- If my Photos library is on an external drive, is there a way to work with recent photos, or some sort of temporary library while I’m detached from that drive?
