    Would it be possible to RE_INSTALL Windows 10 Operating System unto a 64GB micro SD or USB Drive then change the Boot order to that SD card in Bios?

    I have read a few threads where several users asked about increasing C: drive size and the response typically was to change some default folders to D:

    This question is about wiping out the built-in C: drive and do a fresh install on micro SD card.

    Has anyone tried doing that?

    Won't recommend to do so even it is possible because SD card is much slower than internal eMMC.

    Many thanks for the reply, excellent point!
    Most USB3 Flash drive are less than 1/2 the speed of the Minix eMMC memory so that got me thinking: "what about Solid State Drives (SSD)?"

    Well looks like there are 240GB solid State Drives that are TWICE AS FAST as the internal memory of the Minix!!

    One 240GB USB3 SSD example found cost $58 USD!!

    Hmmmm.... now I very tempted......
