With TarDisk cards you can double the capacity of your MacBook


TarDisk company has developed a new memory card for the SD slot of Apple MacBooks specifically designed to behave in a peculiar way and when we insert it into the computer our main hard drive it will automatically win the capacity of the card. 

With this we want to indicate that when you insert the card it does not behave like a new unit of its capacity. The behavior of the same reminds the operating mode of a Fusion Drive in which there is a part of a rotating disk and another of a solid disk. 

In the case of the card TarDisk memory We can even double the capacity of our hard drive by turning it into a Fusion Drive, in this case between two solid storage systems, that of the MacBook's SSD and that of the card. 

When the user inserts the card into the MacBook, simply indicate in Disk Utility that it is the TarDisk card so that the system recognizes it automatically and adds its capacity to our hard drive.

When we are going to buy any of the two models that exist, we are asked which MacBook is it that we have and what year it is since the TarDisk card must be adapted to each of these models.

    I was looking for something like that for my Macbook Air 13 ″ with 512gb because it is a bit short because of the bootcamp but I have several doubts. What happens if you take it out to be able to put the card from the camera to import them into Lightroom? What behavior does this card have in Windows with bootcamp, does it recognize it as another drive? although the best thing about this card is undoubtedly that it is fused to the SSD, is there a possibility of configuration to use it as an additional unit?
    Perhaps due to the fact of having to use the SD slot, I would have to discard this option

    Be careful a warning, I bought a similar product (JetDrive Lite) and burned the SD slot of my Macbook Air and since it is soldered to the LogicBoard if I want to use the SD again I have to pay a pasture, the worst of all is that it is a product that Apple promoted, in fact I bought it in the Apple Store but in the end who is responsible ??? of course no one.
