Windows 7: Suddenly Portable ssd T3 drive can only be written to on windows 10

07 Mar 2017   #11

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

No the word off does though
Substitute on for off and hibernation is on :)

It can write a dirty bit if sharing with another os like win-7.

So I did try to run chkdisk on these t3 solid state external drives on win 7 and it "can not complete it" I ran the REPAIR disk that comes up on win 10 and now the problem with the drive on win7 has vanished I can now write to my disk on win 7.
I really should try understand what is going on here.
is there a real reason for windows 10 to be writing something to my drive that makes it incompatible with windows 7 ? Are they trying to push windows 10 upgrades by doing this. ? -

Thank you for the information.

Check disk on that large of a drive would take a very long time to complete even if it did successfully complete
The hibernation feature puts the drive to deep sleep which win-7 can not wake it up to complete or even start to check disk I would imagine so it errors out.

It's just a new feature of win-10 hibernation/ Fast startup nothing more
Just disable fast startup/ hibernation in win-10 and be done
Most mother boards are not compatible with the 10 feature/ Intel rapid storage feature anyway.
