Windows 10 20H1 reported issues

Microsoft is back with a brand new Windows 10 Preview build for Insiders enrolled in the Fast Ring.  Windows 10 20H1 Build 18898 is available for download.

Microsoft plans to officially release this feature update next year. Meanwhile, Insiders will keep getting new build versions for testing purposes.

The latest build fixes some issues introduced by the previous builds. Microsoft acknowledged a bunch of issues, and Windows 10 users started reporting additional issues on the company’s forums.

Windows 10 build 18898 came with a new feature in the Task Manager Performance tab called Disk Type. Microsoft offered more information about this feature in a blog post:
A small, but perhaps convenient change — you’ll now be able to see the disk type (e.g. SSD) for each disk listed in Task Manager’s performance tab. This is particularly helpful in cases where you have multiple disks listed, so you can differentiate between them.

However, some Insiders reported that this feature is not working as intended.

Disk type feature not working

Some Windows Insiders who installed Windows 10 20H1 Build 18898 reported that Task Manager’s disk type option is not working as it should. 

I have 2 internal SSDs. I inserted an SDHC card and connected a USB card reader expecting to be recognized and labeled accordingly, but they show up as HDDs, contrary to what the new feature supposed to do. That’s my understanding unless I’m missing something.

Apparently, this is only a minor bug. We expect a hotfix with the upcoming build.

Build failed to install

It looks like this build is also affected by installation issues. Another user reported that he encountered error 0xc1900101 right after he restarted his PC during the installation process.  

Software incompatibility

Another Fast Ring Insider stated that he had to uninstall MakeMKV, 7-zip, Freemake and EMDB in order to install build 18898.
