    Using my 1TB Desktop HDD Externally on my MBP
    So i recently just parted out a beast of a Water-Cooled Overclocked Desktop and have a few parts left over.

    I have installed my SSD inside the MBP, however i still have a 1TB Desktop HDD that i would like to have acess to for saving larger files from my MBP. Can i do this with an external HDD Dock?

    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.8.5
    You just need to install that drive into an external HD enclosure. Then format the drive to use with a Mac (using Disk Utility). Format is "Mac OS Extended Journaled").
