I've just bought an OWC aura SSD upgrade For my MacBook Pro late 2013 retina and it should be 1TB but is only showing a size of 480gb. Is there anything I can do to get it to show the correct size, or is it a hardware fault?

    What does diskutil info disk0 give you? – Allan Aug 29 '17 at 3:35
  • Or, if you don't use the command line interface, what do you see in Disk Utility? Is it possible your 1 TB has been partitioned? – Zonker.in.Geneva Aug 29 '17 at 8:04

  • Please post that info into the question by editing it, not putting it in comments. That said - you have a 480.1GB drive. You need to contact OWC – Allan Aug 29 '17 at 12:44
