The Windows 10 May 2019 Update has a freaky USB problem

Windows 10 Microsoft Has Canceled the Sets Promised Long Ago Microsoft Gives Paint the 11th Hour Reprieve it Deserves

The "inappropriate drive reassignment" problem will be addressed in a future Windows 10 servicing update.

An external USB device or SD memory card is attached to the computer. Windows, however, does not: Drive letters are automatically assigned in the order of drive discovery, with A and B reserved for floppy drives and C being the default for the drive on which Windows is installed. To get around it, remove any external USB or SD cards and restart your update installation. Microsoft recently published a support document informing users that their PCs might be unable to install the forthcoming May 2019 Update if they have external USB storage devices or SD cards plugged in. In other words, while your USB drive might show up as "D:" now, it could end up getting renamed to "E:" after upgrading to 1903. However, after the upgrade, the device is reassigned a different drive letter.

According to the Microsoft website, the page for Windows 7 has this message for consumers, "While you could continue to use your PC running Windows 7, without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware".

"For this reason, these computers are now blocked from receiving the May 2019 Update", Microsoft says.

The Paint app was listed as a 'deprecated' feature in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update but it would remain available through the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft has an unexpected warning to those looking to upgrade Windows 10 to the latest version: no removable devices or storage allowed.

Interestingly enough, this error actually won't pop up if you're on a build prior to the April 2018 Update (Windows 10, version 1803) or the October 2018 Update (Windows 10, version 1809), so if you haven't updated in awhile, it actually benefits you in this case. For example, the drive is reassigned as drive H.

As for the Windows 10 update itself, the RTM build is now available for users in the Release Preview ring, so these insiders can install the new drivers and provide valuable feedback that would eventually help determine the cause of potential issues and fix them before the public rollout begins.
