If you own a MacBook, you know one of the biggest problems faced is the dreaded, “startup disk almost full,” warning message. We’ve all seen it, and until recently, the only remedy was to search for large files and manually delete them or transfer them to an external hard drive where they’re no longer easily accessible.
Well, that’s all changing thanks to BIGfish client TarDisk, which launched its innovative solution yesterday. Invented by Harvard Business School alum, Pierce Schiller at the Harvard iLab, TarDisk Pear is the first device to actually merge with a MacBook’s SSD, creating a single hybrid drive for easier file management and increased storage. How does it work? Slide TarDisk Pear into your MacBook’s SD card slot, and voila! Your storage is increased by 128GB or 256GB, often doubling and in some cases tripling your available space.
Sounds pretty cool right? We’re not the only ones who think so. Check out what the media has to say below!
