    Is anyone using a Jetdrive Lite with their MacBook Pro? I was reading that there can be a problem with the Jetdrive remounting after the computer has been put into standby mode, and that the Jetdrive Toolbox software can prevent this problem. I've also read that with earlier versions of El Cap (that was my understanding) that even the software didn't help.

    So... is anyone using a Jetdrive Lite WITHOUT bothering with Jetdrive Toolbox? And if so, is there any remount issues?

    And... anyone that needed to use the Jetdrive Toolbox because of remounting issues, does the Jetdrive Toolbox work as expected?

    I ask because I hate installing unnecessary utilities on my Mac. Thanks.

    I have been running these in my 13" and 15" for quite some time. No software and never so much as a hiccup. Mounts on every restart and reasonably fast.

    Great video.

    Yeah, I just got my 128GB Jetdrive today and I've done some tests letting it sleep and I haven't had any mounting issues. I'll be steering clear of that Toolbox software unless I discover a problem.

    This is such an awesome solution, one I didn't previously know about when I ordered my 256GB equipped rMBP. This allows me to take my iTunes library and photos off my main SSD freeing up at least 75GB!

    I have had some mounting issues in the past on my 64GB Jetdrive on my 2013 MBA, but not for a while now (maybe since El Capitan upgrade?). I don't use any extra software.

    Haven't had any issues so far in the month I've had mine.
