I am using a SSD in a Orico portable storage based on Intel® JHL6340 Thunderbolt™ 3 Controller with my Macbook pro M1 (Monterey). And I noticed that the number of "Unsafe Shutdowns" in SMART DATA increases after each "safely disconnection" of this storage. When I turn my Macbook off it doesn't happen. I found similar solution for Windows not for MacOS. Any idea? Thank you!
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I am sorry to know that you are having issues with your Macbook.
In this case, I would like to let you know that the issues with Smart DATA are related to the SSD. I recommend you check with the manufacturer of the SSD for further instructions.

As I said in the other conversation, I do not believe that the 'similar solution' that you found has anything to do with your issue. Regardless, we cannot help you here; you must deal with Apple for macOS support.
