    Hello Chris,

    Removable drives will show twice in the navigation pane by default. Once under "This PC", and second as its own group.

    The tutorial below can show you how to remove the duplicate drives from showing separately in the navigation pane.

    It's not a removable drive though is a SATA 3 SSD on the same controller as the C: drive. :-S

    I bet it's classified as removable since SATA drives are hot swappable.

    I have 3 internal SATA drives, and only the OS drive and any partition on the OS drive is considered a "fixed drive". The other 2 drives are considered a "removable drive".

    Either way, the tutorial will remove it for you.

    Just to verify, did you use the .reg file from step 2, and approve all the prompts to apply?

    Odd. In that case export the two registry keys below and upload them here. I'll be happy to take a look to see if anything may not be correct.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\DelegateFold ers

    (Only available on 64-bit Windows)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\ DelegateFolders
