Photolab & Big Sur

Getting to the point where I need to update from Catalina to Big Sur.  Has anyone had issues with getting DXO Photolab 4 to work with Big Sur?

PhotoLab 4 works fine for me with Big Sur.   Doing my editing on a 2018 MBP with 32 GB RAM, 20 Vega, 1 TB SSD.

You aren't the only one having problems with a T5 and Big Sur. . .  The last post in the thread points the finger at security permissions required by Big Sur and possible fixes.

T5 SSD not working on macOS Big Sur 11.3.1

Re: Photolab & Big Sur

I have been using Samsung T-series external SSDs since the very first ones, and I have not had any problems with any of them.  First thing I do when I get a new one is to plug it into my machine and go into Disk Utility and erase what's on there and reformat to my desired format,  APFS, and that takes care of everything.  I don't mess with whatever Samsung provides as their proprietary software and such, I don't really need or want it.

No issues with DxO PhotoLab here either on a M1 Macbook Air. It runs fast and smooth.

I don't understand the importance of that link. . . It's just the product webpage for the T5. It doesn't have any info regarding the issue with the SSD.

For anyone reading this thread at a later date, here is information about how to unblock the Samsung software on MacOS.

I had no such problems with the T7.

So the problem with the T5 was caused by the Samsung software that comes preloaded on the SSD and Big Sur security blocking it?

It would have been preferable if the OP stated how the issue was resolved instead of taking leave of this thread without explanation to the respondents and future readers who find this discussion via a forum search. . .

I would have thought that scrolling down on the link provided and d/l and running the install file for Mac Big Sur would have been sufficient.  Guess not.

It is a "minor" security fix, but the download is 3.11 GB.

Linux has better granularity of updates, which generally take less time, although there are more of them.
