If you use Full view or any other special viewing preference option in Removable Storage Management, this is not the view that you see when you re-open Removable Storage Management in Computer Management.

The next time you open the Removable Storage Management snap-in, it appears in the default view.


This behavior occurs because although the Removable Storage Management snap-in can save settings, Computer Management snap-ins do not run in Author mode, thus, the settings that you choose are not saved.


If you want a Computer Management-like snap-in with the Removable Storage Management snap-in in Full view mode, create another console with all of the same snap-ins, and then save it with Removable Storage Management in Full view mode.


This behavior is by design.
