Hi all, quick question - is there an easy fix for this?

My portable 'work' drive, which is a USB-C SSD, never mounts on boot. It mounts fine once I unplug it and re-plug it after my hack has booted.

I'm worried about damaging my usb-c i/o port with the daily unplug/plug routine.

Am I worrying about nothing here?

FYI i'm running Catalina 10.15.3 with no other issues.

Thanks!

@dinz14,

Make sure you have configured your USB ports correctly using one of the many guides available on this site.
It's pretty easy to do using Hackintool which will generate a kext for you.

The latest and most up to date guide is this one :-
