Hello,

Every time I connect an External HDD, Windows 10 recognises it as an Internal. I have tried with 2 different Drives (1 of 120gb and one of 1tb) and both get the same problem. I noticed it first when I tried connecting them and the usual device notification didn't appear. Also the disconnect with security option disappeared, then I checked the Drive properties and discovered Windows read it as a Local Disc. What can I do to solve this?
