If I replace the SSD with another one purchased from iFixit, will it appear as an external or internal drive?

At my job, it's standard to encrypt drives. I purchased an SSD from another vendor and because it showed as external, couldn't be encrypted. I just want to avoid this problem before purchasing one from here.

Absolutely spot on. Thanks Andrew! The only potential pitfall in this job is getting the right replacement SSD (or, if you're extracting the SSD to use elsewhere, getting the right caddy.)
