More details on this issue:
Computer restart does not resolve the issue.
When plugged into the hub, Kaspersky AV (KIS) scans the drive but only recognizes one file, but when plugged into the back, KIS scans the drive and sees thousands of files. The scan takes the same amount of time to complete. I can't see what that one file is, though, in the former case.
I read a Microsoft resolution listing three methods, including manually detecting new hardware on the USB Root (Device manager) and restarting the computer (this latter option has failed has failed). I will report back this evening on which devices connected to the USB hub work correctly while experiencing this USB thumb drive failure on the port.
I am dying to figure out the problem in the hopes of solving this issue and perhaps avoiding crawling to the back of the tower for every plug and unplug operation. What are your experiences and ideas about this issue?
