    I can count the number of times I needed to do a fresh re-install of Windows on my main computer on one hand, all the way back to Win-2K.
    Twice for XP
    None for Windows 7
    And now I have to do it for Windows-10...
    So instead of heading off to the Post office I have to do a final backup of my data and wipe the drive and do a fresh install of Win-Ten....

    Now why, you ask?
    I cannot seem to get the OS to let go of the drive in order that I can make a repair to the system.
    The last beta version broke the start menu power options.
    So it is time to run the media creation tool and start over.

    Are you sure it is not an attack, defender might have stopped a breach, but just not fast enough.

    Good luck, hope you are not encrypted. Might try looking for newly created files before moving on.

    No attack and the methods outlined on various forums don't work ether...
    The drive won't unlock.
    I have my data I guess it is time to wipe it and start over.

    I just buy another drive and start over, just in case. Keep the old one for a spare when everything is confirmed safe.

    I might do that, right now the project is on hold until a critical project is finished.
    The OS is functional, some features broken, but not critical...
    I cannot do anything to the drive, and cannot find what service has it locked.
    No malware and windows updates work.

    I've had to restore lots of images with Acronis... works like a champ.

    No way. I cannot say one thing positive about it. It kept locking up the trial machine for one, then they wanted my to buy a cloud subscription ON TOP the CD I just purchased so I would have other functionality that should have been included with the disc version.
