    Hi, can anyone share on each step of external hdd connection to Minix?

    Few things i'd like to know;

    - Partition requirement
    - Maximum supported hdd capacity
    - Recognizable format
    - Getting streamed media saved into hdd automatically
    - Rooting requirement

    Many thanks in advanced

    I purchased a 4tb Seagate Backup Plus desktop external HDD, it came formatted to NTFS and it works no problem plugged into the back usb ports on my X8-H Plus.

    I formatted my 5TB external USB drive to 1 NTFS partition. Plugged in the USB port (wish it was 3.0).
    Not sure of maximum size the box will recognize, but I assume more.
    Recognizes the entire drive.
    To save streamed media to external drive automatically, you would have to go into setup and configure defaults.
    No rooting required.

    This is very inspiring to me and it makes me love my MINIX Neo U1 even more as an Android power house of a media hub :) Thanks guys for your Terabyte drive confirmations :)

    Hey guys, don't want to start a new topic, so i will try to ask here:
    is it possible to connect simultaneously several ext. drives (seagate go flex 2tb and seagate expansion desktop 4tb) with X8-H Plus ?

    update: well, got my U1 recently, drives are plugged in and running.
