    I downloaded this last Friday night and it took two reboots because I just triggered the download then went to bed and when I woke up the next morning it asked for another reboot.

    I like the change to the bigger font for file explorer. Much easier to read now. It did change all of my files from large icons to details so I've had to change them back as I come to them. Not a big deal though.

    However, a much bigger deal is that since this update occurred I can't eject a USB device like an external hard drive safely anymore. I keep getting the same error message that the device is in use and can't be ejected. But I've verified through task manager that nothing is running. The drive could be sitting there idle for hours and I still get that error message. I read one suggestion to use disk management and right click on the drive to eject it but I don't see that option. If I choose remove device it still says it's in use and can't remove it.

    I don't want to continue physically pulling the device because I read that can cause damage if done too many times but right now I have no choice until I can figure out what's causing this error message.
    I have not seen this. USB memory sticks eject with no problem. Tomorrow is Backup day and I'll see if there are any problems with ejecting spinning USB Disks.

    Reboot your machine and after it is up and running, go to Action Center and put "Focus Assist" to "Off". Try again "Safely Remove Hardware" and see what gives. If that fails, shut off the machine completely and wait at least for 5 minutes and unplug the offending USB.

    The aforementioned workaround has always helped me in the past when facing this issue.

    Cheers!
    Reboot the computer while the hard drive is still connected?

    I don't think that would affect anything. You can still try to put "Focus Assist" to "Off" without rebooting and use "Safely Remove Hardware" and see if it works.

    It does not cause any physical damage, but could cause file corruption. I see this many times with flash drives, too. After a couple tries, I remove the drive. It has never caused any issues with the drives.

    I tried both of these suggestions and neither one of them worked. I think Focus Assist might have already been turned off because it wasn't blue when I went into the Action Center.

    A also noticed that after this Windows update, each time I plugged in a external hard drive a box comes up asking me what I want to do with this device. I haven't seen that message in a very long time but I just wonder if that has anything to do with this error I'm getting.

    I definitely don't want either one of them, file corruption or physical damage. If I can't figure out how to get rid of the error message and safely eject the drive then I'll have to do the wait until after the machine is shut down to unplug them.

    Did anyone get this update twice?

    In my case, putting "Focus Assist" to "OFF" has always worked for me, because normally it would be on "Priority Only". Moreover, it is not even an issue anymore to use "Safely Remove Hardware" according to MS since the implementation of the new feature "Quick Removal". One can unplug any USB attached device without bothering about causing physical damage or corruption, but out of an abundance of caution, I sill use Safely Remove Hardware in order to see the toast notification fly-out at the bottom right of the screen confirming that it is safe to remove.

    Now, with regard to "each time I plugged in a external hard drive a box comes up asking me what I want to do with this device", you can type "Autoplay" in the search box and click on "Autoplay Settings" when it appears and toggle the radio button to "Off"

    That's good to know that there "shouldn't" be any kind of damage by just unplugging it. I would still kind of like to see the all clear message again. I would definitely never pull one out while writing something to it. It's funny though, I could have a drive sitting idle for several hours with just the solid light on indicating it's powered on, try to safely eject it, get that error message, then the light will blink 2 or 3 times then be solid for another 5 or 6 seconds and just start repeating that cycle. So I'll pull it while the light is solid even though there's nothing going to it.

    By toggling that auto play to off does that just stop that message of asking what I want to do to it? That message didn't start popping up until this update either. The popup message and the can't eject error message both started when this update was downloaded. Now I remember seeing that what to do message a long time ago like back when I first got the computer but it eventually stopped asking for the external hard drives. It does still ask each time I connect my phone to it to download pictures.

    Yes it does, but also you can live it (radio button) to "On" and tinker with the "Choose Autoplay Defaults" for what you want, as per screenshot in post # 56. As you know, MS has the bad habit sometimes of changing one's settings and it's up to you to verify what's happened when one of your settings is not working anymore the way it used to before.
