    I don't have that update, and i just checked that folder but it was empty, but thanks for help anyway :)

    The bug hasnt happened in few days now so i will just hope it doesn't come back anytime soon, temp fix is to restart windows explorer from task manager
    or wait till they bring the proper fix in Build 25136

    Fixes
    [General]
    • Addressed an issue which was leading to some PCs being erroneously detected as tablets. When this happened, compact mode and the option to hide checkboxes in File Explorer wouldn’t take effect.

    My Samsung 970 Pro M2 Gen3 showed up as unsupported, it transpires that Samsung's very own NVMe driver version 3.3 isn't supported. I had to uninstall this so I am now running off Microsoft's own Windows 11 driver. Now I am supported. Kinda makes sense given the last update from Samsung was quite some time ago and the later 980's don't require the driver.

    you need to remove the empty folder.

    Samsung need to update their driver, currently only the microsoft nvme driver is supported.


    Microsoft are being a bit shady in their wording here, DirectStorage will work with the samsung driver, but it won't have ByPassIO enabled.

    i mean the SecurityHealth folder is empty so there's nothing in it to remove, so as i said will just have to wait till Microsoft pulls that finger out and releases that update properly, im not joining the dev option as its usually full of bugs

    but it fills the whole thing now but instead it will be able to swap it with DS loading only what's needed in real time

    Because we can add and remove textures as needed much faster, we don't need to have so many of them cached in the vram.

    And if we add Sampler Feedback Streaming, then the savings can be even greater.
    Or, we can have assets with much greater detail and variety.
