Mining with external USB harddisk

Hello! Is it possible to mine with an external usb harddisk? I’ve a few TBs of space available and want to put it to good use. But I’m afraid the USB transfer rate might not be good enough for what filecoin wants to achieve. Suggestions?

That is absolutely impossible. The filecoin network requires a large number of machines to run

If you attach this storage path as “store only” it should be OK. But for sealing the sectors you’ll need 2 TB NVME SSD. You can work with 1 TB, but it’s complicated. For storing of already sealed sectors there is no need in extra-fast storage.
