      Ok, but beware ......

      I bought this drive to back up my drive prior to servicing (I had an affected MacBook). I chose this one since it is sold by Apple, is Time Machine compatible a I bought this drive to back up my drive prior to servicing (I had an affected MacBook). I chose this one since it is sold by Apple, is Time Machine compatible and, as the description states, is ‘Created especially for Mac computers’. However, on running the backup I am unable to encrypt the data, the ‘encrypt data’ is greyed out which means that the drive does not support encryption. I use my MacBook for work and it has to be encrypted (GDPR). Therefore, once I have restored my MacBook I will have to delete the data on the drive, as I cannot have unsecured data. A waste of £60. The description on the website does not state this and this information should be included as it is vital for certain data storage.
