    Windows 10 Pro X64


    What will this affect if its disabled ?
    The "Portable device Enumerator" service tries synchronizing media content to removable devices even if there's nothing to sync. Hence the error when that device is no longer present at boot.

    You can boot, restart etc. with removable devices connected but once you remove one of them at boot, Windows will complain throwing this error at you.

    This particular service is a bit odd as I don't know of any native app which allows you to set up what to sync to what and what not. Maybe it's ahead of its time. LOL.

    The error in Event Viewer point to a particular device so using the Hive Key as a reference in Regedit allows you to remove that device and the error will vanish.

    I have that service enabled (manual, trigger start) and unless I'm distracted and forget to remove a USB device it won't generate any errors. (On W10 AU Edition).

    Enforces group policy for removable mass-storage devices. Enables applications such as Windows Media Player and Image Import Wizard to transfer and synchronize content using removable mass-storage devices.
    IMHO You can keep it disabled unless your computer is having a problem synchronizing / working with a media device. Then you can set it back to manual (is default) or try automatic if problem persists.
