Yikes! Your post just had me running to my PC to check my external drives. All are fine after yesterday’s update. Yeesh.
What Windows Update does break, EVERY FREAKING TIME, is my mixer. I use VoiceMeter Banana and a virtual audio cable for my recording and streaming, and every time there’s an update, I have to uninstall cable, reboot, uninstall voicemeter, reboot, reinstall cable, reboot, reinstall voicemeter, reboot.
It’s kind of maddening.
