T5 HD Capacity
« on: April 20, 2020, 07:23:20 AM »
Hi all, can't see this in the manuals...

Assuming I delete all data from the internal hard drive, how big IS that hard drive actually?

I'm asking because I'm starting gigging again after the lockdown and I have my songs and arrangements backed up on a memory stick.

In my experience, the less stuff you have to lug around 'on the road', the less you're likely to lose. Or get stolen.

Ergo I plan to initially save my songs etc to the stick then transfer them to the HD, thus carrying the backup stick in my gig bag.

Cheers.

Norm.

PS I have a LOT of songs saved as backing trax so I can play guitar along with the T5 playback.

500 GB (specs).Songs, arrangements etc are quite small so a USB stick should suffice for al storage needs and is also easy to backup to a PC and spare stick. USB sticks are less prone to failure than a harddisk because there are no moving parts. I've been gigging with bands, choirs etc. for some years and I alwas used a USB stick which only protrudes 3 mm fron the USB port, so it can stay in there always. And I always carry a spare USB stick with a backup on my keychain. Never lost them and never had a failure. I only use the internal harddisk for simple audio recordings, but even for that, I prefer to use my audio interface. So as far as I'm concerned, the internal disk is quite useless.

Never had a problem with Hard Drive on Tyros 5. one thing is sure you would have a hell of a job filling it. All the things I have acquired over the years including Audio Songs Midi Songs styles registrations and other things only ever used around 35Gb.

I use a SanDisk Cruzer or SanDisk UltraFit which is very short and less prone to getting bumped and I leave it in my usb slot all the time. I have several which I use for backups.

Hey McBrown, McLoud here!

I found the very thing on Amazon. Ordered one today.

Great thing about this forum is that people like you not only comment but come up with practical tips that I wouldn't have thought of.

Cheers!

Norm.
