OD for Mac on external hdd

Copper Contributor

So my bad! I bought a mac mini with a small 256gb ssd (no way to upgrade). I have 300gb of one drive data. When I set up the mac mini from a clean install, Onedrive setup allowed me to site my onedrive folder on the external drive. All good for now! 

Time goes by, I have to move my hardware. I plug everything back in. onedrive asks me to re sign in (dunno why, but it did). Now when I try to choose the onedrive folder on the external hdd. I get a message saying I can't use this folder.


I've read the article about making the external hdd non ejectable. It could have been written in Swahili for all the good it was.


Help please?
