    Looking for some help. Trying to make something useful out of this POS. It's extremely lacking in internal memory. Does anyone know of a way to make Chromebook treat a thumbdrive as internal memory? I've seen a few supposed methods to do this on various message forums, but ultimately they don't work.„ SYS64738„„---„ Ģ Synchronet Ģ TX Node 1 - 192.168.1.13„
