How do I Upgrade the new AirPort A1470 to SSD?

I don't care for 2TB of storage and would like a reliable SSD in there instead. Can I upgrade the new airport to SSD?

Thanks!

Can you explain your reasoning for doing this? While it can be done, I do wonder if its worth it. Given the limit of storage size and placement on a slower interconnect (the internal SATA connection of the system is the fastest), Network attached storage (either Ethernet or WiFi 802.11ac) is the slowest choice with Thunderbolt being in the ideal external connection (replacing FireWire).

As to the question on reliability between a HD Vs SSD storage. I'm not so sure if SSD's are more reliable in all cases. A device that is mobile like a laptop I do think it is a better fit. But even still, the amount of data on the device that is altered wears it. I've now replaced a good dozen of SSD's which are just worn out this year. Granted these were early versions of SSD's & we are very hard on constant changing of data on these laptops so that could be a factor as well. But, the point still remains SSD's do wear out. A HD over it's lifetime can be rewritten a lot more times, but the mechanics of the drive can fail. If its in a desktop or NAS device that is not being moved about it a HD drive is still ideal. Now in a data center using SSD's as a front end storage makes sense as the speed it offers across the servers has its advantages. But, unlike desktops & laptops this data is not altered as often and better quality SSD's are used (more expensive) and use high speed inter-connections.

Update: its five years later with this entry A lot has changed! SSD's are now 1000's of times better than what we were using back then. In fact just a year later we encountered no SSD failures! We moved to Samsung and we continued to use them with I think just one failure in the last five years. Other vendors have also improved too with their quality! Today we use SSD's throughout our systems both laptop & desktop. HD's are now mostly used for bulk storage of data.

Theoretically - yes it can be done, only you know your abilities. Detailed Removal 2TB HD Plus Install 4TB HD + Formating. Familiarize yourself with opening exchanging the drive in the previous model, then look at the teardown (not a guide) for the new one.

Take lots of notes and pictures. Use the recommended tools (every job is easier if you use the proper tools). You can write and publish the guide for this.

Good Luck,

I am not sure what you would gain from the SSD apart from its low temps. There would be no speed advantage as you would be operating through ethernet at best. A quality HDD would easily saturate that bandwidth.

There is a major issue with how it would be mounted though. The TC does not have traditional mounting points. The HDD is held in with rubber corners and a 'pressure' plate holding it all in. Even if you get a caddy it will likely not fit. Basically you need a standard HDD 'shape'.

Also the TC spins the drive down when not in use. I am wondering if this would possibly cause problems with an SSD.

You would gain reliability. The Samsung 840 Evo Pro has been tested to last longer than you could possibly live.

Maybe in a few years I could see this as worth it (cheaper SSD's). Today I don't see it. I would rather spend the money on a directly attached Thunderbolt RAID'ed drive sub system than putting it into a TC. That way I would gain the speed and the reliability.

The Evo or the Pro? There is no 840 Evo Pro. Plus they have not been tested to last as long as a humans live. Plus their test environments use TRIM on a computer and the ATC does not use TRIM. You would be mad to put an SSD in an ATC. There are no fittings for a 2.5". The fit relies on pressure based on a 3.5" chassis. Just get a quality HDD.

Sir, you said :"Also the TC spins the drive down when not in use. I am wondering if this would possibly cause problems with an SSD." What do you mean by saying the TC spins the HDD and what is the mechanism behind? Interested to know.

So, what happened? Can it be done? I would really like to expand the storage in my Time Capsul

Well, there are newer HDD's which are larger (storage-wise) but you do need to review the physical size of these newer drives, as the drive can is often larger which would be an issue trying to fit in the limited space the TC has.

If you really need more space I don't think a TC is the right way to go. I would strongly recommend sticking with an external Thunderbolt RAID'ed drive.

Thanks. I actually have a Synology RAID as well 5TB but I haven’t found a reliable way to use Time Machine using the RAID. But maybe will have to look into it more.

I wonder if there’s a way to do a double-drive SSD configuration for the Apple Time Capsule.

No. There is only one sata point on the logic board. Plus the transfer speed is bottled necked on the time capsule. It is slow, no matter what the drive. So just get a HDD twice the size of the two SSDs you wish to use. And mount points only work with a 3.5" drive. It is a squeeze fit with rubber. No screws. Although you could probably somehow secure a 2.5" drive in there.

what about a hybrid hdd

As I said. Same goes for a hybrid. There is simply no speed benefit from a SSD or Hybrid. Plus you must use a 3.5" drive.

A Seagate FireCuda should work!

While acces via WiFi won't offer much benefit swapping to SSD access via Ethernet would!

Mounting an SSD in the empty hall of where the HDD used to be is simple enough: double sided tape.

Just stick it on the inside wall and that’s it.
