  1. Any way to get the hostname for an external HDD with Windows 10?


    Hi,
    I've got a computer with Windows 10 installed, the software is corrupted but I can access internal files just fine if I attach it's HDD with USB. I'd like to know the hostname for that Windows 10, so I removed the HDD and attached it to another Windows 10 machine I booted from.
    I heard there should be a log file in that corrupted Windows 10 to check the hostname. Anyone can help me locate it?

    :)

  2. external HDD

    Hi,

    Usually, this problem occur due to software incompatibility or corrupted USB drivers. For us to better assist you, we would like to clarify the following:

    • Have you made any recent changes on your computer prior to the issue?
    • Which driver did you uninstall? Have you reinstall the driver? If yes, how did you reinstall the driver?
    • Have you check if the external HDD is visible in Device Manager?

    If the issue still persists after uninstalling some games, we suggest that you run the troubleshooter for hardware and devices. If you're using the latest Windows 10 version, follow these steps on how to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter:

    • Click the Start button and select the Settings
      icon.
    • Choose Update & Security from the list.
    • Click Troubleshoot in the left pane of the window.
    • Under Find and fix other problems, select Hardware and Devices and click
      Run the troubleshooter.

    We're looking forward to your reply.
