    I've never, including now, had any problem with DU on macOS High Sierra. Only macOS Mojave and only on my late 2019 iMac; it's okay on my wife's MacBook Pro 2017 running macOS Mojave.

    Not losing any sleep over this

    Just another input -
    I'm running Mojave (10.14.6) on a late 2012 Mini on an external SSD and I have no problem switching back and forth between the All Devices and Volumes Only option.

    I don't use Time Machine at all.

    Has anyone who has the problem tried disconnecting the Time Machine drive to see if that makes any difference?

    @krs, not sure what that would have to do with it, but yes, I tried disconnecting the TM drive and it made no difference. I'm still unable to change the view. Not a big deal for me, as I said, and it doesn't affect DU functionality, but it is curious behavior.

    Seemed like a logical thing to try.
    Bernard first post sounds as if he could change the view until he did something with TM.
    Ian has two Macs running Mojave, one with the problem and one without.
    Hard to imagine that this issue would be machine type related, actually can't be since for Bernard it used to work but no more - so what else has changed or is different that would cause this issue?

    Mine is the same as Jake's. I'm unable to change the view. I wonder if it is intentional when running Catalina?

    Could be, Charlie, but you would think there would be some sort of prompt about that. And if it's the default, they probably should remove the other options. I do have to say Apple has been a bit sloppy about that sort of thing lately.

    Don't think so - Bernard is running Mojave and he has the problem.

    I have Catalina, and I can change views whenever I want.
    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
    PS: When there is an accident or error, is the tool to blame or is the fool to blame?

    Bernard,

    For what it's worth, I see no point in reinstalling the OS. The issue with the viewing options in Disk Utility (DU) is trivial and is not going to affect you. Moreover, a reinstallation might make no difference.

    I reinstalled macOS Mojave and I have the same situation as you.

    What's more, reinstallation is not a straightforward procedure - I actually posted a new Thread on this very matter. In my case, the new OS came as 10.14.4. I then had to use the Mojave Combo Installer to bring it up to 10.14.6. The hassle factor is high and I wouldn't recommend it in your case. BTW since I went through all this, there have been 2 further security and other updates.

    Unless I've missed something in earlier posts, your Mac is otherwise working OK?
