      Start-up disk for late 2012 Mac Mini

The improvement in speed to start-up and program loading has been impressive: Using the internal HD drive: on to desktop took 2 minutes 48 seconds Using SanDisk 510 external with USB3: on to desktop took 42 seconds that is exactly 4 times faster By comparison my MacBook Air 2015 i7 500GB internal SSD and 8MB RAM started in 28 seconds from on to desktop. Both are running OSX High Sierra. I will keep my MacMini for another year or so! The impact on productivity is noticeable. NOTE: when formatting the SanDisk with th MacOS Disk Utility do not forget to select "Show All Devices" in the "View" menu on the Disk Utility toolbar on the left. Then select "Erase" in the middle of the toolbar and check SanDisk Ext SSD snd then enter your new disk name (i.e: MyMac2. Make sure you select as Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map Click on the "Erase" button and the disk will be formatted. You can now download High Sierra to this disk and use it as a start-up. If you have any useful data on your SanDisk back it up first.
