This problem popped up in the last day or two. Whenever I plug in one of my external drives, I'm now getting this message no matter which usb port I use. I ran a restore off of my back-ups to three days ago and the issue is still there. I don't remember changing any settings so can't figure out what caused this.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you

Hi Leesie

Sorry for the late reply. 

Go into settings on windows 10 and under Auto play you will have Removable drive. Change to take no action.

This is a link on how to access autoplay https://www.tenforum...ndows-10-a.html.
