    So this cloud drive is all new to me and realized that if I put files on the cloud, they still take up space on my computer... Which made me realize the base 2016 15" rMBP is not enough space. Is it possible to use bootcamp on an external ssd like the t3? Is t3 the fastest drive available and should there be any lag using it? Also, how would you do it? Could you use something like winclone?

    Hi,

    it should be possible, if you will find a ssd with a device block size of 4096.
    I bought the samsung t3 with the same plan to move bootcamp with winclone to the external drive. But it didn't work cause of the device block size.

    Here is a link to my thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/bootcamp-win10-external-hdd-block-size.2022216/
