    Not a show stopper but annoying.

    This has been posted multiple times and not only the external but the internal with more than one partitions on the disk.

    Hi there

    Must have missed it -- anyway it's still an issue with build 9860. However the Multiple partition on INTERNAL Disks seems to have been fixed -- I have C and D as two partitions on an internal SSD (and there's the hidden system one as well).

    Volume D only shows up once.

    However on EXTERNAL HDD's the multiple partitions problem is also still there. I can see TWO duplicate volumes when I connect a USB with TWO partitions.

    If you click on a drive and look at the address bar it will say DriveX/This PC,
    if you click on the mirror drive it will only say DriveX.
    I'm guessing it may something to do with syncing devices, or how libraries gather content, or maybe something different.
    It's a mystery.
