    External HDD showing twice in file explorer


    My external drive(Samsung) connected via usb3 has started showing twice in file explorer. Opening either shows exactly the same files inside.
    Screen shot below, I've never tried this so I hope I've done it OK
    Any help with removing the "imposter" would be appreciated.
