No option to add additional Scratch Disk

I want to add my external hard drive SanDisk Extreme Pro (1TB 2000Mb/s Read-write)  as the scratch disk.   

 

On my Mac, I'm holding Command + Option while launching the app in order to add another scratch disk.  But I don't see any option to add another scratch disk.   I've tried right-clicking, restarting, retrying, unplugging and plugging back in.    Below is an image of what it looks like for my scratch disk options upon launching Photoshop.

 

I also tried this with my external hard drive - WD 1TB USB 3 and had no luck.

This helped me get to a win.  I'm going to put my results here to help anyone else.

 

I changed the Privacy settings and that didn't help (at least directly).

 

I then reformatted my SanDisk and after doing that, all the scratch disk options magically showed up in Photoshop, including the WD external hard drive (that I didn't reformat).
