Apple always inspires its users to use cloud space to store data. If you are well-versed with Apple’s eco-system, you must know that iCloud space is limited to 5 GB; if you want more space, you need to buy space on iCloud. All the basic models in communication and computer range from Apple start with 16GB and 128GB; given the usage of iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks, it is pretty limited space any user would appreciate.
This has created a need for more space; Apple has devised its products so that memory is not able to expand with an internal card. Moreover, you can’t open your MacBook and fit an SSD into it. If you want to add another 250GB or more to your MacBook, you will have to shell out, at last, $250 more.
TarDisk Pear Internal Storage Disk for MacBook
Thankfully, there is TarDisk Pear by TarDisk.com, which enhances the storage space on your MacBook in an instant. The product is available in two variants – 128GB and 256GB. You can insert the TarDisk Pear into your MacBook Air, MacBook Pro (CD), and MacBook Pro (Retina) in 11″ and 13″ sizes.
Before you install TarDisk Pear…
Installing TarDisk Pear is a lengthy process; it might take from 40 to 50 minutes of yours with many clicks and a few restarts of your MacBook. First off, make sure that you have 8GB of space on your system and a MacBook with an SD port. Once you start the process, you will be asked to switch off encryption on your internal drive by turning off FileVault and enabling Core Storage.
A backup of your data is recommended before you complete the installation procedure. First, just insert TarDisk Pear in MacBook’s SD card slot; installation instruction will pop up automatically to guide you through the entire installation process. Within a few easy steps, you will install Pear successfully; please note that formatting will happen in the backend.
Usage of TarDisk Pear
It is pretty effortless. Forget any external device you have installed on your MacBook; TarDisk Pear effortlessly merges with your internal drive. It looks like you have upgraded your existing drive on MacBook.
TarDisk Pear is a fantastic solution for storage crunch on your MacBook. However, considering the difference between 128GB and 256GB variants, people would likely choose the first option as 128GB Pear is available at $149, and 256GB Pear costs $399. TarDisk should work upon the prices of the product if they want to accelerate sales.
