Printing Spool

Hi Shane

 Could I move my printing spool to an external hard drive? Will this slow down my printing?

I dont think you can. But when it comes to running anything off an external I say no.
Externals are slower because the usb 2.0 can only do about 25 mb/s. (Usb 3.0 can do better of course)

So anything needing to run off a drive I have it run on my fastest drive :-)
