Hello,

I assume macOS is installed on the external SSD? It may be because the Samsung SSD is using their T5 partitioning...not sure if you can change that.

I would drop a line to Bombich and ask them, as they are VERY knowledgeable and responsive. Mike Bombich actually used to work for Apple.

hey cory how are you , thanks for the reply.....
have imac w/ 2 externals, back up and Sierra ssd boot, boot is failing,( disk warrior cant replace directory due to damaged drive ) ....got T5 to replace imac external but when copied, drop down stated that the partition scheme was not compatible with apple intel osx and im left with data storage not a boot. im thinking repartition T5 but utilities is not allowing it, the only thing i could do was erase and reformat the T5 which was done twice..... perhaps due to Samsungs T5 versatile applications the architecture is storage only with the apple osx....
either samsung is hiding the fact or im missing something .....
