    I have a Sandisk Extreme SSD drive, formatted NTFS, that mounts fine on a real PC and it was mounting fine in my Windows 10 VM. However, now when I attach the drive through the Devices menu, it only shows up as "Unconfigured" in the Devices and Printers control panel and Device Manager indicates an issue with the driver. Uninstalling the driver and having Windows detect it again does not fix it.

    This is with the latest version of Parallels (18.0.1) so I'm wondering if the update had something to do with it. I have another NTFS drive (HDD, not SSD) that mounts fine in the VM though I did have to uninstall and reinstall the driver to make that happen.

    Any ideas?
