Windows 10: Is the Anniversary Update Missing Drives Problem Solved?

    Is the Anniversary Update Missing Drives Problem Solved?

    There were many posts on the forum a month ago following the Anniversary Update (AU) about people having missing drives or drives showing RAW format.

    I haven't noticed any recent reports and wonder if this problem has now been solved? I've been postponing upgrading to the AU until the problem is sorted.

    I've seen no replies yet. Can I safely assume this problem has now been fixed in recent updates?

    If it's been fixed, you would be able to read web reports about it, and almost certainly a News item in this forum. (There isn't one, I think).

    It's now nearly 3 months since the Anniversary Update. Has this bug been fixed yet since I haven't seen recent reports of it on the forum?

    It would seem it's worth trying after the substantial cumulative updates; I'd suggest manually downloading 1607 and accepting updates when installing (expect several 100Mb).

    Hope you're using disk imaging routinely- if not, now's the time to start. (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) strongly recommended as I expect you know).

    Thanks - I already make good use of Reflect. I was just going to deselect the Defer Upgrades option and let Windows update. You mentioned manually downloading 1607. Is that the same as running a repair install i.e. you run setup.exe from the ISO file which will then update the PC to the AU version? Some recommend disconnecting all but the system drive for the upgrade. I can disconnect the external USB drive but I don't really want to disconnect the two internal HDDs I have for user files (OS is on a separate SSD). Will that be a problem?

    Effectively yes. Of course being sensitive to the drive issue, the safest would be to disconnect. My laptop has a SSD and a SSHD- no problems. But they are not Seagate or WD- and either people typically use these and report problems, or problems are only associated with these (not Hitachi, Toshiba... or so it seems).
