Valid question! The reason why would be to perhaps get my two external external harddrive enclosures which I have connected up to the Thunderbolt ports (using USB-C type plug) to not randomly shut down when I restart the computer. I suspect it has something to do with the drivers. I can just restart them manually by turning them on again of course, but it's kind of annoying. Also IF I can get UASP support under Windows 7 that'd make me very very happy. I thought I would have to install either Windows 8.1 or 10 for that feature to be available. Kindest regards.
