Microsoft Paint is not going away in Windows 10

Microsoft Gives Paint the 11th Hour Reprieve it Deserves

In doing so, however, it has telegraphed the need for an urgent overhaul of the Windows storage system - owing to the fact that the company can't guarantee drives won't be rearranged during reboot, confusing the installer. In other words, while your USB drive might show up as "D:" now, it could end up getting renamed to "E:" after upgrading to 1903.

As spotted by The Register, a support article pins the problem on mismanaging drive letter assignments.

Microsoft Gives Paint the 11th Hour Reprieve it Deserves

"Inappropriate drive reassignment can occur on eligible computers that have an external USB device or SD memory card attached during the installation of the May 2019 update", Microsoft explains.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update is due in next month and hence Microsoft is now laying the groundwork for a smooth rollout of the update. After 35 days, though, that's your lot: you'll have to update before you can pause again.

Microsoft has an unexpected warning to those looking to upgrade Windows 10 to the latest version: no removable devices or storage allowed.

Installing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (1803) may take a little longer than expected if you insist on leaving United States dollars devices or SD cards plugged into your PC all the time. That error will appear with the message "This PC can't be upgraded to Windows 10", which sounds quite ominous, but that's far from the case. If Windows detects one of these devices or cards plugged into the system, it won't let the update through, and it will throw up an error instead that states that your hardware is not ready for the version of Windows 10. It can also affect internal hard drives as well. Users can download the said RTM build by opting for the Release Preview Insider ring or from MSDN if they have a subscription. However, it's not clear if that will come before or after the update is made available to the public.
