My Mac Situation: Please Help!

Mac Basics and Help - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hey guys, I hate to be creating a thread, but I really need the help from the Mac experts on here!

This is my current situation:

My Mac Mini's(mid 2011) 500GB internal HDD died, but luckily I had backed everything up to an external Time Machine drive. To get the Mac Mini working again I plugged in a USB 2.0 HDD and I restored all of the files to this USB 2.0 HDD and it worked great.

However, the USB HDD is only USB 2.0 and not USB 3.0 as the Mac Mini mid 2011 only came with USB 2.0 so my Mac Mini is too slow and is unusable.

Is it possible to "speed up" my Mac Mini using the current USB HDD or is USB 2.0 too slow?

What's my best solution?

Thank you!
