    Is this an external drive?
    When you expand This PC does it show twice?

    Thanks this worked. Also this shows this is a dumb Windows design choice if I have to download a registry edit to remove a simple line from the navigation page.

    The "Storage" drive is not an external drive. Yes when I expand "This PC" it does show twice. Anyway I fixed it now using the registry edit thanks a lot.
