Windows 10: USB Duplication in Explorer

    USB Duplication in Explorer

    I have just bought two new SanDisk 32 GB USBs and when I insert each of them in my Vaio laptop, it show as duplicated - showing "This PC - removable disk (E) and the other just removable disk (E). Even the contents I have put on one have been duplicated. Can anyone tell me if I can just continue by saving to one of these drives, or am I building up future problems for myself by leaving it as it is please? (03/11/15)

    Hello Clydesdale, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    This is normal. You have one for it under "This PC", and another once for it as a separate group in the navigation pane.

    If you like, you can use the tutorial below to remove drives as separate groups in the navigation pane.

    Thank you so much Brink. I thought I had done something wrong. If this is normal, then I will just leave it as it is, if it doesn't cause any problems. Never come across it before which made me uncertain. Many thanks again :)

    You're most welcome. It won't hurt anything if you wanted to remove them. It's just a personal choice that you can turn on and off at will. :)
