Hey guys,

 

so I bought an SSD sometime and got an ICY-BOX kit to connect to via USB-C to my Macbook.

 

I wanted to add this external ssd as a scratch disk or "Arbeitsvolumes" (called like this in German) but its not showing up. Maybe because I've already saved my private data on this ssd?

 

Is there someone with a fimiliar problem?

 

Does my SSD have to be empty?

 

Thanks in advance

That is most likely the problem. I don't think that you can use disks that are not Apple (HFS+ or APFS) formatted.
