    Duplicate Drive Entries in Explorer


    Here is a screen shot of the left hand panel of File Explorer. Note it shows two entries for My Passport 1TB (X. That is, of course, my external USB drive. When I open either one of them the same file and folder list appears Why does that drive it show up twice? And, can I deleted one of them?

    Thank you.
