    How to configure USB drives auto-play per each specific drive?


    I have configured Windows 10 to open up my USB thumb drive in Windows Explorer automatically when it's plugged in. This is very convenient.

    What is not convenient is when it does the same with my 3 external USB hard drives when I reboot the system. These drives are plugged into my desktop and are used for backups and shouldn't be opening up automatically when I reboot.

    So question -- can I configure auto-play per drive letter/device?

    You might consider disabling autoplay on shutdown (via scheduled task) and re-enabling after logging in e.g. via a small script added to startup.
