I am thinking about buying a Microsoft Surface Go. I could connect the Topfield and an external HDD to it via a Surface dock.

Do you think that the Surface Go would be able to "see" the Toppy, and that I would be able to transfer recordingds between it and the external HDD?

Thanks

I have my doubts, but you never know.

Note this...…

Quote:
The base Surface Go will run Windows 10 Home, although it can be upgraded to run Windows 10 Pro, which will likely be the default choice for businesses. Windows 10 Home will be locked to S mode, which will limit the operating system to only running apps from the Microsoft Store.

Thanks ccs.

I have my doubts as well, but I might give it a try.

I am aware of the Windows Home 10S restriction, but I was thinking of buying from CCl, who supply Surface Gos with Pro installed.

I suppose that copying to the Surface Go SSD might be a better bet.

Success Very Happy.

I had to jump through a couple of hoops to install z4t, but once it was installed I copied a couple of recordings from the Toppy to the Surface Go internal SSD.

I haven't tried an external HDD yet, but I have no reason to believe that it won't work.

Thanks jimi

I connected an external HDD to the Surface dock and it showed up in Antares on the Surface Go. I transferred a recording from the Toppy to the HDD.
