    File Explorer Help?

  3. Win 10 - File Explorer Crashes

    Hello MSFT Support,

    Where have you gone?...this is a major issue for many loyal customers but as you can tell frustration is setting in with many in the lack of direction from Microsoft. I feel like we are trying various home remedies when the problem is with Microsoft File
    Explorer which we rely on being stable and available.

    Having us go to SafeMode is not a solution, also you could create more problems for customers in that BitLocker may come into play, which doesn't appear to be easy way to suspend this in non-Enterprise versions of Win10 before rebooting into SafeMode.

    Please give us some direction or when the fix will be implemented?

    It would be a real shame if you lose loyal customers to Apple or Google but lack of leadership here may steer many in that direction.

    Best Regards!

    (FYI) I know nothing about raid so I might be way off. Can you go into Disk Management(right click on the little window on the lower left) and assign it a drive letter?

    What RAID type is configured?
     
  6. JustinHD Win User
    I believe it's RAID 1 (mirror).
    I will hold off on the drive letter change as I don't want to risk messing up the Raid, although I'm pretty sure myself that changing the drive letter will not affect it in any way.
    FYI - this is a fresh install of Windows 10, the raid was initially configured in Windows 7, then reinstalled 7, then updated to 10, then reinstalled 10 - so I basically didn't mess around with it at any point.

    I believe that you address the array with Raid1 rather than the individual drives.

    I'm sorry but I don't quite understand your suggestion....
    Are you saying that changing the drive letter might actually work?

    This may be not directly relevant, but still useful.
    Could you fill in your specs your hard drives (with size)?
     
  10. JustinHD Win User
    Done.
    EDIT: Changing the drive letter did not fix the issue.

    I did not suggest to change the drive letter. My thought was that the 2 disks have only 1 address if they are in a Raid1 array.

    They do...
    I can't think of any reason why it doesn't show up on the left side....it did in the previous Win10 installation.

    When all is working correctly, all drives will appear under This PC, but only Removable Drives will appear in the root of the Navigation Pane.

    Drive D: is Non-Removable and before I reinstalled Windows 10, all of my drives appeared in the root on the navigation panel as well as under "This PC"
    EDIT: A quick search with the correct key words (I was not using "navigation panel") revealed this thread on these forums: Drives in Navigation Pane - Add or Remove in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    However, my problem does not seem to fit that....
