    Speed Up VHD Mount - Taskbar Icons Gone


    I have an Asus Transformer T100TAF with a 32 GB EMMC hard drive. Not much to work with so I installed a 128GB SanDisk U1 drive that is mounted as a VHD D:\using a Task manager task.

    I then changed the Storage settings so all new files go to the D:\ drive and all new app have been installed to the D:\ drive. I also changed the location of all of the primary Windows folders (Douments, Downloads, etc) to D:\Users\[my name]\...

    I works really well EXCEPT, when starting I get a message that the D:\ drive is not available. In a minute or so it's available but I then have to open Task Manager and retart Windows Explorer to regain my taskbar icons.

    How can I avoid this by accerating the mounting of the VHD or, if that's not possible, how can I structure a Windows Explorer Restart task that would start 2 minutes after booting. I'm also willing to move some functions back to the C:\ drive if it will fix this.

    Thanks for reading and for any help offered.

    :)

    Bitlocker VHD not mounting

    When I try to mount my bitlocker-encrypted VHD file, I get the following error message:

    Couldn't Mount File, Make sure the file is in NTFS volume and isn't a compressed folder or volume

    When I previously and successfully mounted the vhd, I was prompted for the BitLocker password. But now there is no password prompt and I get the latter error.

    How do I get this vhd to mount?

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.
