When switching the drive from Fixed Disk to Removable Media, there is a small unallocated partition. Where did this come from?

If you set up the drive as Fixed and use a GPT partition style, this will create a small UEFI partition on the drive. If you switch the drive from Fixed to Removable, the drive will then use an MBR partition style and the UEFI partition will appear as unallocated/formattable space. For this use case, we recommend resetting the drive following the instructions in the product manual. Then create a new partition and format the drive. This process will delete the “hidden” UEFI partition. Using MBR partitions for Fixed Disk will not create the UEFI partition.
