Can I use an external hard drive for my Stream??

Stream 11d010wm
Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit)

My stream is almost out of room.  I figured this would happen sooner or later since I didn't have room to download Windows10.  Can I purchase an external hard drive, and download all software for to it (even W10)?

 

Presently I have a couple of games downloaded along w/antivirus and such.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

It is a bit difficult to actually run software from an external drive. The better bet is to put in an SD card and use that as a second hard drive in the laptop. You can move music, movies, pictures, docs to it and then also install programs to it. Post back if that holds any interest.
