Default Xbox One - need external hard drive

My son's Xbox need more storage..

I see external hard drives made for the Xbox, but will any external drive work or does it have to be made for the Xbox?

I have a new 2TB Western Digital one here.. could I use it for the Xbox?

Thanks

Any external hard drive will work. I bought this one for our Xbox One https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Expan...70_&dpSrc=srch

Thanks.. do you need to format it to the Xbox or just plug it in?

I don't remember exactly what I did, it was a year ago, but it was painless.

Would the throughput help if it were an SSD, USB 2.0 port on the XBONE?
