    How can I remove ghost drives in File Explorer?


    After I worked with an external macOS drive with several HFS+ partitions and unplugging it (I was using HFS+ app for Windows to view Mac drives connected to USB), I got these phantom drives on File Explorer.

    What I've already tried to no avail:

    - Remove from disk management: they don't show up there!.
    - Remove with Admin Command Prompt: diskpart (enter)
    list volume...etc. Doesn't show up there either!.

    What can I do?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Go to Device Manager and set its View to show hidden devices.
    Do they show up there, and if so can you remove them from there?

    Select one drive,then right click on it.If "eject" shows on the menu,then left click on it.If this works,then do the same ,individually ,for each drive.
