Queston about low memory hard drive

Hi !! Can anyone tell me when we have 500 GO hard drive, if we use extarnal hard drive
do it work like a internal hard drive ?
If yes how much it work we install like komplete on hard drive 500 gb and libaries of komplete on external hard drive ?

Excuse my bad english i am french speaking !

Do you use a laptop?

Internal drives work faster and are the preferred option amongst DAW users, but if you are on a laptop you don’t have that option.
An external (USB3 eSATA ?) drive may work ok for you but that would depend on how much data you are streaming.

Please post your system specs, it will be easier to help you if we know something about your setup.
