Windows 10: Windows 10 Anniversary update problems, not recognizing external hdd
Hey, guys. I've just found this page ( 16 Windows 10 Anniversary Update Issues How to Fix Them ), where the NTFS/RAW problem is mentioned and it says two free disk utils can "fix" it.
Maybe, it's worth a try.
(As they are low level partition tools, I recommend to previously back-up your drive, nonetheless... Remember your drive is fine, so you are trying to fix something that isn't broken...)
When I upgrade from 8.1 to 10, I had a problem also a External HDD and at the end I lost almost all Data on HDD, the HDD is quite new, little usage for Backup purposes , so there is no Hardware problem with HDD.
Probably it is a USB Drivers problem!
Yesterday I noticed a strange behavior with external USB HDD.
I had a External HDD connected to USB 3.0 Port and added a Second External HDD to the 2nd USB 3.0 Port and Windows disconnected the First HDD and connected it again automatically along with the Second HDD.
Windows explorer was poping up 2 times, one for each drive.
I think this is not normal, disconnect and reconnect Drive just because I connected a 2nd Drive.
I have not seen this behavior before and I think this is very risky.
[QUOTE=volta9e;769804]Same problem here, rolling back fixed it for now.
Microsoft is still trying to figure out what is causing it, they know about the problem. They are even active on Reddit.
If anyone wants to help out, then contact the MS guy on the MS forum by sending him a PM: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...1-f1872b7b4ba1
I think we should all go and click on the me too button in the Microsoft thread. the more me too's the better the chances they will fix it sooner.
i am not tech expert, but with the issues relating to RAW drives, if you roll back to 1511, wont the system want to reinstall 1607 in a few days?
Also i tried checking my external drives using easeus partiton program as suggest in another post as a way to fix the RAW issue.
IT confirms that my drive is NTFS and is all in good shape.
So, what you say is you can't fix it because those tools don't see anything to fix. (Exactly what happens with windows own chkdsk). That makes sense and would render those 3rd party tools useless...
About the possible re-update:
I don't know how Windows is coded but Microsoft would be pretty stupid and suicidal if they re-automatically applied an update which the user has rolled back from because it is suffering troubles (the roll back process does explicitly ask you about your reasons...)
Nevertheless, if you are in Pro (not in Home) you can tick a safety "Defer updates" or something like that inside Advanced Options of Windows Update.
I have the ame issue
One of my USB 2.0 pots do not appear in Device manager
Please clarify because that's not the same issue.
The issue here is NTFS partitions seen as RAW (in Disk Manager) so the drive is not accessible. But the HDD drive (hardware) itself remains perfectly visible.
In other words, what it means is that Windows is not handling properly the Filesystem.
Mine weren't affected either. Go figure.
After I installed 1607 and turned on my External USB3 HD......it's blue light just kept blinking, NOT Normal, then I see W10 is displaying an Icon that tells me it is Setting UP Device........turns out it is an ETERNAL Setup! With it ON.......you see NO Drives in Disk Management.....turn off ext. drive and my 2 Internal Drives do show up. Have tried everything I can think of to NO avail?????
Also, found out this AM when I went to use my Printer - the UPDATE also wiped out my Printer Drivers.....had to re-download and install them to use Printer again.
