Updating hard drive

Rated 4.16/5 based on 974 customer reviews

Open Device Manager, locate your hard drive on the list of devices , right-click on it and select Update driver.

Select ‘Search automatically for updated driver software’ and wait until Windows 10 installs the latest drivers.

Windows 10 updates often bring new features and bug fixes and are essential if you want to keep your system running optimally.

However, sometimes these updates bring certain issues as well.

If you want to be extra safe, then you should create a system image of your computer so that you can recover all your apps and settings, along with your other important files when needed. On your Windows PC, search "backup" Backup and Restore (Windows 7) and then click on ‘Create a system image’ option from the sidebar. Now choose where you want to save the backup image. Click the Start backup button to start the backup process.

It is recommended that you choose an external hard drive for backups. Cumulative updates on Windows 10 are mandatory, they are no longer optional.

Still, it’s strange that Microsoft only detected this USB storage issue late in the May 2019 Update, when it has millions of Windows 10 testers helping flag issues like these.

Microsoft notes “this issue will be resolved in a future servicing update for Windows 10,” but that clearly won’t be available in time for when the company starts distributing this May 2019 Update later next month.Windows 10 testers on the Release Preview ring can already get access to the final May 2019 Update, and Microsoft is being far more careful with its last-minute testing this time around.The previous October 2018 Update hit some file deletion issues when it first rolled out, and Microsoft clearly doesn’t want a repeat of any similar issues.External hard drives may disappear because of faulty USB ports.You can quickly fix this issue by connecting your hard drive to different port.
