    How to delete double copy of back up

    I am not sure how it happened, but there are two identical back up copies on my external hard drive.
    I tried to delete one by right clicking on the drive, but there is no delete icon on the list.
    How can I accomplish that.

    PS these are back ups made with windows10

    Hey Johannes,
    If your referring to the two Seagate Backup Plus Drive (E) entries, that's normal in windows 10.
