Bug report #14481
If already opened QGIS Browser (standalone and panel) doesn't show newly connected usb drives

I connect an usb drive disk and it's not listed among the drives of QGIS browser panel. However, it's available when using QGIS Browser Standalone.
tested on windows 10.
Testing further. Actually, the drive isn't found if the browser panel was opened before the drive is connected. Hitting 'Reload' does nothing, neither do closing and reopening the browser panel.
However, opening the second browser panel shows the drive.
But if both panels were opened before the connection, none will find it.
It looks like the list of drives is initialised only at the first opening of the panel. If not done automatically, at least reloading button should also trigger reinitialisation of the drive list, imho.
Same behaviour for QGIS Browser application: doesn't update the list of drives.
Hope that helps a dev to fix this issue.
Add native platform interface for usb storage events
Allows native interfaces to send a signal when a USB storage device

- File browserMissDrive.PNG added
- Affected QGIS version changed from 2.14.0 to 3.0.0
- Description updated (diff)
Now, none of the browsers finds the drive if it has been connected after you open QGIS (see screenshot in which the drive G is missing in the instance that was opened before i connect it - Reload does nothing)
