Device control functions normally when a device is connected to a mac, and applies the monitor, block, allow, or read-only normally. However upon a restart, if the removable storage device is left connected and it is large (>1 TB in our experience), then it may behave differently.
Versions prior to 9.9.0
Block and Read-Only modes for the device will not function for the large device upon restart of the OS, until the device is disconnected and reconnected.
Version 9.9.0 and above
Read-only mode for the large device will not function upon restart of the OS, until the device is disconnected and reconnected.
