I have a current ImDisk installed in a Win10 Pro desktop machine. There's a 7 port USB hub connected via a rear USB port, and an assortment of thumb drives plugged into it. I also have an inkjet printer that connects via USB.
I discovered the hard way that if I plug the printer into a front USB port, USB goes bonkers, and half of the thumb drives plugged into the hub disappear from Windows. A restart is needed to get things back to sanity. If I pull a thumb drive and plug the printer into the USB hub, things work.
The bit that has me posting here is that when USB goes bonkers, I lose my ImDisk ramdrive, too. It simply goes away, and I must restart to get it back. (It's where my Firefox profile normally lives, so having it go away is a show stopper.)
I don't understand that at all. I wasn't aware of any connection between the ImDisk driver and USB support that might cause this to occur.
Has anyone else seen behavior like this?
