Didnt work at all. Hard drive wasnt recognised by the mac due from the sata caddy tray.
Opening disk utility showed that the device was there BUT it was greyscaled meaning that it was unable to be recognised and mounted. Unmounting the device and trying a different one didnt work at all... so i had to check if it was my hard drives/ssd to see if they were the problem and lucky not.
so not sure what the problem is but would like help or someone to recommend me a different option.
quality of the product was good...
