  1. Windows File Explorer Duplicates Drives


    In my PC tower I have two 1.0TB solid state drives (C and E). Connected externally I have two 2.0TB and one 3.0TB portable disc drives (G, H and I) and also a 16GB memory stick used as a ReadyBoost (drive F). In my Windows File Explorer Drives C and E show normally (i.e. once only). Drives F, G, H and I are duplicated below the other drives - they are exactly the same. How can I get rid of these duplicates?


    Thank you very much.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. File Explorer for Windows 10 shows Duplicate External Drive Folders/Files

    Windows has recreated the key. I've just found another way to hide the duplicate removable drives. You can download the REG file here.

    [Solved] Drives appear twice in Windows 10 File Explorer navigation pane

    You need to logoff and login back for the changes the take effect.

    (There is also a UNDO file if you want to revert back the setting.)
