NTFS became RAW on all external hard drives
« on: June 06, 2013, 12:36:07 AM »
The only program I installed after the clean install is minitool;

Has minitool suddenly corrupt the read and changed the file system to RAW because they want to sell their paid verion
RANSOM WARE anyone?

How to reset the registry to enable Automatic Drive Assignment when pluging in a drive to the USB port.

manually, go to computer management, click on the raw driove and ASSIGN a letter... then only login as administrator

After a couple hours searching, I found this command code works;

Open up a command prompt.
Enter the following:
diskpart <enter> (takes a few seconds to load)
automount enable <enter>
Exit.

"no need to reboot"

Please help fix the automatic drive assigment and use for the system, TIA

Registry: change
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MountMgr\NoAutoMount
 
Value of 1 is disabled
Value of 0 is enabled
 
Noautomount value not present defaults to enabled

What is minitool? Never heard of it.

And is it happening on the same system with any external drive, or does it happen if you plug it into another system as well?

Hi,

Something caused all the xternal frives to read raw...

it was either minitool or xxcopy...

I am tired of these ransomware programs!

Already fixed by clicking the start menu;
then the computer management snapin;
then click on disk management;
 and used that feature,
 dont want say more here because people are likely to mess up their NTFS system. if they do, they  won't be happy!
