Optimization and volume rebuild of external drives 14 Sep 2017 00:53 #8559

I was trying to do a volume rebuild and file & volume optimization on an external drive but I notice that none of my external drives show up in those tools. Only my internal drive on my 2012 iMac shows up. My externals show up in Partition Rebuild and various test selections. I am using TTP 9.5.1 on OS 10.10.5 (Yosemite). I could have sworn in previous versions of TTP I could optimize and volume rebuild external drives. Am I doing something wrong?

Just downloaded 9.5.2 and Mac OS formatted drives now show up in the optimization and volume rebuild tools. Two drives that are ExFat formatted still don't show up. AM I right in thinking that TTP doesn't like ExFat formatted drives? Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the update, and for your cooperation.

The Volume Rebuild, File Optimization, and Volume Optimization tools in TechTool Pro 9.5.2 work on HFS+, also known as Mac OS Extended (journaled) volumes. The tools do not recognize FAT32 volumes or devices formatted by Windows.
