Windows 10 PC Having Problems with USB Storage

For the last week or so my W10 PC will sometimes refuse to recognise USB storage devices, like my ext HD and USB memory sticks. Re-starting the PC will cure the problem. Has Microsoft done something naughty again with the latest update. Anyone help?

I use sleep from morning to evening, when I shut down properly. I usually have my ext HD on during the day but plug the USB drives in as & when I need them. Everything has worked faultlessly until a week or so ago. I suspect a rogue MS update. Ransomware I know to be a problem. I have another ext HD in a safe as a backup to my daily ext HD & sync once a month.
