    Is there a reason the Mac mini M1 wouldn’t get this update? I’m on 13.1 and it insists I’m up-to-date. I have a great internet connection, I’ve repeatedly restarted and refreshed the software update page and still nothing.

  2. Larry says:

    I just updated to Ventura 13.2, suddenly I cannot see any of my HDDs! I can see SSDs connected externally, but not my array of USB drives. Can I reverse the update? I have not been using Time Machine

    • Paul says:

      Did you open Disk Utility and see if the app finds the external drives? You might also try disconnecting the drive(s), rebooting the Mac, and reconnecting after the Mac boots back up. Try a different USB port as well, you never know.
