Out of Space on Your Macbook Pro? Tardisk Review

Out of space on your Macbook Pro? Last year I purchased a new Apple Macbook Pro. I’ve been a Macbook Pro user for the last 7 years. My first Macbook lasted 6 years and now the kids use it. My previous laptops would last 2 years and then boo – something would happen forcing me to purchase another laptop.

When I purchased my newest Macbook Pro, the solid state drive option was available. My husband had put a SSD in my other Macbook. There was a major difference in speed, so I knew I needed to choose the SSD option. What I didn’t think about was how quickly I go thru hard drive space.

As a mom to 4 kids, photos and videos over runneth my laptop’s storage. What I didn’t realize is just exactly how much space those and the Adobe suite actually take up. (It’s a lot.) For the last few months, I’ve been in delete mode. We are still using the Western Digital My Cloud back-up system – which is great but I still am having to migrate photos over continually.

Double Your Hard Drive Space in Minutes

Meet Tardisk. Tardisk is hybrid Macbook storage.


TarDisk is the easiest way to expand your Macintosh HD.  Your files stay secure inside TarDisk’s UniBody aluminum enclosure.

In clear language – it’s an additional hard drive that installs into your SD card reader that increases your hard drive spaces by either 128 GB or 256 GB. BONUS: Tardisk does not show as an additional hard drive, it shows acts as one hard drive in iOS.

The annoying “out of disk space” had been haunting me for too long.  Tardisk couldn’t arrived at a better time.


The longest part of installing Tardisk was running Time Machine to back-up the hard drive. After that, the whole installation took me around 15 minutes. It’s was a simple process, the steps were easily laid out.

Overall Tardisk Review

This has been the ideal solution for increasing hard drive space. I didn’t have to take apart my Macbook Pro to install a new hard drive, which brings a whole an array of issues and tasks. This solution is fast, I haven’t experienced any performance issues. Tardisk seamlessly integrates with your Macbook Pro Unibody design. (Nothing sticks out!)

The only downside is that I have to use an external SD reader now. I purchased this SD reader to import photos and what not.
