it was probably this one, its sitting waiting to install on my PC - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/june-23-2022-kb5014668-os-build-22000-778-preview-2b5f1da6-d602-48b4-b443-96b460e3c38d
you can check by looking in update history

what do you use discovery for? seems it updates WD Software. Do you need it to actually use the drive?
I got the external(2TB) drive to backup my HD(1TB). I do have an identical HD. I just haven't installed it yet. It worked before the recent Win11 update.

can you show a screenshot? upload to image sharing website and show link here.
i not sure why i gave you win 10 instructions but the steps are mostly the same, they just moved the menus.

Haven't received anymore notices for the screenshot. As for uninstalling the update, that is easy, regardless of the Win10 link.
