All USB drives and devices are missing after using Bash for Windows


My Windows 10 Professional can see only hard drives:

DiskManager and BIOS can't see flash drives too.

Maybe it is linked with turning on and off my Linux subsystem on my Windows 10. I turned it on in "Turn Windows features on or off" and used Bash for Windows in order to install VirtualBox, Vagrant and Ansible.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install virtualbox

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vagrant

sudo apt-get install software-properities-common
sudo apt-get-repository ppa:ansible/ansible
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ansible

Also I have tried to set a locale:

sudo update-locale LANG=en_US.UTF8

Then I have closed bash in order to reopen it with new locale.

But my Bash on Windows didn't open again. Now it just opens and closes immediately.

I have tried to turn it off (in "Turn Windows features on or off") and turn on again:

  1. Turn off.
  2. Reboot my computer.
  3. Turn on.
  4. Reboot my computer.
  5. Open WindowsPowerShell as administrator:

    PS C:\windows\system32> bash
    Error: 0x80070002
    PS C:\windows\system32>

Then I also tried to do it from cmd:

lxrun /uninstall /full
lxrun /install

And I have Error: 0x80070002 again.

And at a result I can't work with usb-drives. So I can't load from bootUSB.
