    I can't safely remove a USB drive on Windows 10 Pro


    Hi,

    I have a Windows 10 Pro, but I can't safely remove all of my USB drives, because I receive the classic error message of something that doesn't let the USB drive removal.

    At this moment, I have all of the features of Windows 10 Pro enabled, but I noticed that when I install Windows 10 Pro with the default Windows components installed I don't have the problem; if I activate all of the extra Windows features the problem happens.

    I don't know if it's a bug of the Pro version, or some optional feature blocks the access to the USB drives; but the problem is to be able to identify the nature of the problem.

    Do you have a suggestion?

    Thank you

    I have the 2004 version, 19041.508

    :)

    help. USB drive isn't assigned a drive letter.

    Any usb flash drive I plug into my computer isn't assigned a drive letter. The physical drive shows in the "safely remove hardware" but it doesnt show up in disk management. I have tried to populate the volume thru the safely remove hardware properties window and it does pop up in the list but it doesn't stay there. This isn't a format or assign a letter problem. It's more complicated then that. Maybe one of the services needed for usb drive management was disabled? Suggestions needed. btw external usb harddrives work fine.
