Windows 10 May 2019 update can't be installed while using USB or SD Cards

24 April 2019 2

Tech giant Microsoft frequently rolls out new updates to Windows 10 that majorly includes security improvements in addition to minor features. Now in the latest development, the company is laying their groundwork for Windows 10 May 2019 update. The support document for this purpose gives a clear indication that in cases users who’re having their external USB storage devices or SD cards being used won’t be able to install the May 2019 update.

The primary reason behind this is shared to be as the “inappropriate drive reassignment” that occurs on computers running on Windows 10 having USB drive and SD card attachments. Considering this, Microsoft shared in a statement,

“Inappropriate drive reassignment can occur on eligible computers that have an external USB device or SD memory card attached during the installation of the May 2019 update,”

This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to install the update in case you don’t happen to eject the USB or SD card from your PC and there is a way out for you. Microsoft would be rolling out a fix for this issue that would be released in a cumulative update coming up in the near future which then you could install, though you’d need to wait for that.

Well, it's better to have the installation unsuccessful and not going in case you have the USB or SD cards installed instead of sorting out drive reassignment issues later.
