hello!! i am replacing an elderly (dead) HDD with a 1TB Samsung SSD. I know samsung SSD's have issues with this sometimes, but everything went well...until i saw the drive only sees 750GB of the 1TB SSD, with an unformatted 250GB of "free space". the drive is formatted as APFS.


how do i get the ios (high sierra 10.13.6) to see or use this unused "free space"?



THANKS!!!!!!!

hello and thank you for your time. i don't understand your q. can you elaborate?

i formatted it in the choices you see when you get the o/s from the internet, as i held control command r upon booting after installing the new SSD.
