Odd! bios/uefi bug? Have you checked for an update for the bios?

Did a search and found this very weird sounding solution that has worked for many people so give it a try and see what happens...

"My fix was purely by accident. I was in Admin Tools and saw "Memory Diagnostic Tools" and clicked on it as I've never seen it before.
After Windows rebooted after the test, all my drives were there!"

All disks are listed in diskpart

Okay, I wasn't very clear..but windows doesn't see the disk AT ALL. Diskpart would see the disk too even if you don't assign it a letter. But it wasn't there.
(pic is from my personal computer)

It does see it when I hook it up with the external docking station.

Go in to Disk Management (right click start button to find a link) then right click on the drive in question and assign a drive letter. I've had many problems with Win10 not assigning drive letters recently on a couple of computers!?! I think it's a bug.

Having an issue with the work computer. After windows kept crashing and freezing at random, and nothing was reported in the logs, I decided to swap the drive and install a fresh version of windows 10. All seems to work..except that windows doesn't see the second drive.
However the uefi/bios of the mobo, an ASRock H81M-VG4, does list it.

I've updating all drivers, tried enabling the disk thu diskpart, even changed the data and power cables but nothing. Windows does not see the disk. What gives?

Microsoft are total bastards for that. The only way you can stop it repeatedly installing the wrong driver is to tell it that the driver they installed doesn't work and then revert back to the previous one.
I think if you have Win10 Pro you can stop it from installing drivers but not in Home :/

Microsoft decided to install not-the-latest driver of my gpu without my consent while I was watching a movie! Seriously thinking about going back to 8.1

>>33981 Yes. The PC software is here, http://www.fjsoft.at/en/, and the phone client is here, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fjsoft.myphoneexplorer.client

>>33975 Do you install that on the phone and on the pc?

>>33974 I had a feeling it would suck like that :/ I'll stick to using MyPhoneExplorer to send and receive text messages from phone on my computer.

Reset, removed & installed again..didn't matter problem with the photos app remained.

So I removed it and installed Photo viewer.

Just updated the work station. No issues there.

Even the Photo's app works normal. So I'll do a reinstall of that app on my personal rig when I get home.

>>33968 no, not yet. I bet it will demand I install something on my phone :|

Oh btw, it didn't re-installed previous deleted apps. And it hasn't borked my pc.
The visual styling is minimal, just enough to notice but not not earth shattering.

Bug/issue
The 'Search in Windows' seems more horrible then before. Can't even find (old) settings. :(

Have you tried the phone connection thing?

18/10/17(Wed)02:15

Found some bugs, cause they say they fixed things but ..

- Using the app 'Photo', if you delete a picture it brings up a 'DELETE/CANCEL' menu (that's still the same). But you can't use the left cursor and press enter, you first have to use right cursor, then left cursor, and then press spacebar to delete it :/

Got this icon in the taskbar for 'connecting with people' which I removed immediately.

They added the GPU in 'Task Manager'. YAY!
