    The mystery virtual drive


    18912
    Remember the Portablebaselayer 8 gig virtual drive?
    It now appears to be hidden (sort of).
    It no longer shows in Drive Management but does in the Device Manager.

    Do you have sandbox enabled?

    Contrary to popular belief that this drive is related to the reserved storage space for updates, it has been shown this drive is visible when sandbox is enabled and hidden or does not exist when sandbox is disabled.

    Curious eh....

    note this is on the preview edition .
    Just checked 1903, portablebaselayer is visible in disk management. Only one virtual drive in
    device manager.

    Interesting, portablebaselayer is no longer visible if sandbox is enabled on 18192 as stated earlier.

    ???? !!

    What on earth has weather got to do with Internet -- OK if a Solar flare that causes electronic breakdowns etc - but why should "terrestial" weather cause an Internet breakdown --presumably most of the infrastructure is carried by Electo magnetic radiation --i.e wireless transmission - even from satellites !!!!!!

    I'm experimenting with the Sandbox so I'll see if I get this defect too -- never noticed it on previous build though --admittedly wasn't looking for it though.
