Microsoft has now “progressively” pushed for the deployment of Windows 10 May 2020 (20H1/Version 2004) feature updates, but some devices have not been upgraded due to driver, compatibility and other issues. Microsoft has confirmed a list of tested upgradeable devices with PC manufacturers such as Dell and Lenovo, but users on social media and the Microsoft support community have reported some undocumented issues.

Storage Spaces

The Windows 10 system has a built-in feature called Storage Spaces that protects your data from storage problems and drive failures. Storage Spaces allows users to group drives into a “storage pool” that stores additional copies of data to keep your data safe in the event of a drive failure.

However, after the user feedback was upgraded to Windows 10 Version 2004, Storage Spaces did not work. Multiple users were unable to create a new Storage Space on The Feedback Hub and displayed “Cannot Create New Storage Space. Error (0x00000057): The Parameter is an event.” (The new Storage Space could not be created.) Error code 0x0000057: The parameter is incorrect.

However, user feedback can be created under the same disk through tools such as PowerShell, indicating that the problem exists only in the control panel interface.

One user feedback

My 20TB Parity Storage Spaces appears as raw, with no access to files. Storage tools and Powershell show that it is healthy and contains data. It looks like the ReFS partition is damaged, and I might have to pay for recovery software and some external drives to copy files so I can rebuild.

Another user added:

I started noting last week that I saved a damage dislocated tip on Parity Storage Spaces. However, there are no errors in chkdsk. Fortunately, I’ve been able to recover images from the backup, and the damaged version hasn’t synced back to OneDrive.

Drive Optimizer

Windows 10 May 2020 feature updates start, and the Drive Optimizer tool no longer records the date of the last manual or automatic scan, which can cause other problems. For example, the tool will warn you that your driver is not optimized and that you need to run a scan, but the tool is still doing its work.

Fortunately, Microsoft seems to be aware of the defrag tool problem and will soon deploy a fix.

Windows Media Player

The May 2020 update also reportedly breaks the visuality of Windows Media Player. After the May 2020 update, colors and patterns that automatically move when playing music in Windows Media Player are no longer valid.
