Windows 10 May 2019 Update thwarted by obscure tech known as 'external storage'

Fans of the underused and little-known technology mostly referred to as "external storage" have found themselves blocked from installing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

The problem, which has had users scratching their heads as to why devices such as their shiny new Microsoft Surface fondleslabs were choking on the update, can occur if USB storage or an SD card is plugged in.

Microsoft has delicately referred to the issue as "inappropriate drive assignment" in its support article on the matter, using the example of an external device mounted as G: in the existing configuration being reassigned as H:.

Yes, it is 2019 and an awful lot of software still depends on drive letters.
