Intel Compute Stick STK1AW32SC external HDD

hello,

can the STK1AW32SC support an external hdd of 1TB without a powered USB hub ?

I don't have one yet to test this out thats why I am asking

I would like to avoid buying a powered usb hub, i'd just like to plug it in directly in the provided usb3 port but I am not sure if the stick has enough juice.

thanks.

The answer is yes if this is a 2.5" drive. The power requirements for a 2.5" drive are within the power envelope provided by USB 3.0 ports. This is not the case for 3.5" drives, however. They require much more power than is provided.
