    Can I use external Hard Drive connected by USB in place of internal memory on my iMac

    I would like to use a Transcend external hard drive connected by USB in place of internal hard drive for day to day memory.
    Back up is by Airport Time Capsule wireless connection which I want to back up everything including information on Transcend.
    If I can do this please suggest Settings

    Do you mean to run OSX off this external drive or just use it for your personal files?

    Apologies for delayed reply. I want to use external drive to store mainly my Photography work rather than storing on Mac. I then want my Airport Time Mach to back up everything.
