Can I use this to connect a Samsung T5 SSD to my Mac Pro 2013?
Hi, I have a Mac Pro (Late 2013) with 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports, I need extra hard drive space and would like to take advantage of the 20 Gbps Thunderbolt speeds. I see the Samsung T5 SSD is USB-C.
So if I buy this adapter will it connect a Mac Pro to a Samsung T5?
I know similar questions have been asked but I couldn't see a clear Yes or No answer...

It would NOT benefit you to purchase this. The Samsung T5 SSD doesn't support Thunderbolt 2, it supports up to USB 3.1 (although it apparently can only go as fast as a USB 3 connection). Your Mac Pro has 4 USB 3 ports, so you should just use the USB-C to USB-A cable included with the Samsung T5 SSD.
