How do I find my EMC number?

How do I install my Feather SSD?

  2. Ensure that your computer is running High Sierra or later OS versions.
  3. Power down your MacBook and make sure it is not plugged into the charger.
  4. Using the P5 screwdriver (red), remove all of the screws from the back of your MacBook.
  5. Remove the back panel of your MacBook, starting near the hinge.
  6. Using the T5 screwdriver (blue), remove the SSD mounting screw.
  7. Gently pull out the old SSD.
  8. Insert Feather SSD and return the mounting screw.
  9. Place the back panel back on the MacBook and secure with screws.
  10. Press Power and let the MacBook turn on normally.

  3. Select your storage device as the backup disk.
  4. Select Encrypt Backup Disk.

If Time Machine doesn't automatically ask to use your drive upon connection, you can add it manually: (1) Open Time Machine preferences under the Time Machine icon in the menu bar or by choose the Apple icon in the upper left hand corner of your screen, (2) click System Preferences, and (3) click Time Machine.
  7. Click Select Backup Disk (or Select Disk, or Add or Remove Backup Disk).

I'm getting a flashing folder with a question mark. What do I do?
Make sure you are turning on your Mac by only pressing the Power button.

Still getting the flashing folder? Your SSD may need to be pushed in better. To be sure, turn your Mac off, open the back to ensure the SSD is snugly seated in the Mac, put the back of the Mac back on again, press Power, and see if anything changes.

No changes? Please email our support team at contact@fledging.net and we will work with you to determine if a replacement is needed.
