Do I need a bigger SSD for range research with huge databases?

  • Hey, I recently got h2n edge with death star HUD and everything worked great until I tried mda.

    I got like 20 million hands to do range research with and that database is 70GB. My own database (about 1 million hands) is only 4GB but I only built stats for last 12 months (about 150k hands). My SSD (256GB) is full already and the stats of that new huge database aren't even completely built yet.

    1. So do I need to buy a bigger SSD for it?
    2. How much difference would it make for performance if I use M.2(NVMe) SSD / 2.5"(SATA 6Gb/s) SSD / 3.5"(SATA 6Gb/s) HDD for Hand2note?
    3. How much space would it take for 20M / 100M hands?
