Is there a limit to the number of physical disks that can be connected to, but not mounted in a Windows 10 Pro x64 system?
If so, is there a registry key that can be used to increase this limit?
I use a 3rd party fiber connected storage system that presents available volumes to the system, and then mounts them as drive letters using a desktop client.
There are currently 97 of the volumes (again, not mounted with drive letters until I use the desktop client presents them as drive letters.)
On systems with locally attached storage or when plugging in an external USB drive, the system locks up. The magic number of total drives seems to be 100.
100 or fewer and all is well. Connect drive 101, and things stop working.
It's also possible that this is some limitation or problem with the 3rd party software, but I thought that I would start with the OS first as a logical possibility.
