Windows 10: No access on HDD's and USB flash drives

    No access on HDD's and USB flash drives


    Because i do not know if there is a specific term for the problem i'm facing with access, to look for possible solutions, i open this thread and forgive me if there is already a thread with the same problem.

    I do not have access to any of the extra hard disks and flash drives.
    The only hard drive that i normally access is C.
    If i change the letter of the disc, i will have access, but after restarting, again the same.
    What can i do about this please?

    Hi Immortal. Welcome to the Tenforums @Immortal

    I looked up your problem and it sounds like automount is disable.

    If you open a command prompt(admin) or power shell (Admin)

    Then these commands

    Automount enable

    I guess I would ask how it became disabled (command is automount disable)

    Before enabling or making changes did you have a virus or other malware? Are you dual booting to "Linux" or a form of Linux or any other OS. Looking for what caused.
