    This is very bad! Some applications are relying on flash drive partitions which were hidden up to now to store sensitive data. Now those partitions are exposed and Windows suggest to format them!

      You could just, you know, not format your sensitive partitions. This provides much better functionality for users who want or need this and has no drawbacks unless someone doesn’t know what they’re doing and decides to format anyway. If you lose data it’s entirely your own fault.
