Microsoft Working to Block Windows 10 April 2018 Update Upgrades from Devices Running with Toshiba Components

Another one of those unknown gotchas has cropped up over the past few days. Microsoft is now aware of an issue with its latest feature update that causes laptop battery to degrade severely if the device is running with a Toshiba XG4 Series, Toshiba XG5 Series or Toshiba BG3 Series solid state disk (SSD) drive.

How, this was missed during partner testing is unknown and a bit ridiculous. This particular release was pushed from its original schedule due to problems and it appears that many more problems existed when Microsoft decided to go whole-hound and release it anyway.

According to the warning post, Microsoft doesn’t expect a fix until June.
