Mac Pro supports up to one or two solid-state drive (SSD) modules, depending on the capacity. The SSD modules are paired to and encrypted by the T2 Security Chip. If you replace the SSD modules, use Apple Configurator to erase and set them up for your Mac Pro.
To install or replace the SSD modules in your Mac Pro, here's what you need:
- T8 screwdriver
- USB-C to USB-C cable that supports both power and data
Thunderbolt 3 cables aren’t supported.
- Another Mac computer with macOS 10.14.6 or later and Apple Configurator 2.12 or later
- SSD modules compatible with Mac Pro (2019)
Uninstall and install SSD modules
Do not proceed unless all data from the existing SSD has been backed up. Once a new SSD pairing operation has started, the data on the existing SSD is not recoverable.
Follow these steps to uninstall and install SSD modules in your Mac Pro.
Restore the firmware
Once you've installed the new SSD modules, restore the firmware on the Apple T2 Security Chip and erase the internal flash storage on your Mac.
