That's not possible with the Passport. Western Digital didn't use a normal SATA drive for the latest version of the Passport. The USB3 circuitry is soldered directly on the Passport's HDD's circuit board.

Replace the Passport with an SSD in USB 3.0 enclosure. tongue.gif Unfortunately, small block writes is a particular failing of mechanical hard drives. You can enable write caching but you'd have to be diligent about using "Safely Remove Hardware" if you do so.
