Open disk... disk shown twice

Post by Tonewheel » 24 Sep 2018 15:56

Hello,

Tools -> Open disk... -> Physical disks

This shows one of my 3 drives twice as Hard disk 1 and Hard disk 3. It lists 4 disks instead of 3. Is it normal, a bug or something wrong in my system?
Thanks for any help.

Can you show me a screenshot of the disk open window?

Also please run disk management (Windows key+R, then enter diskmgmt.msc and press enter), make it full screen (to show the details) and take a screenshot as well.

Thanks for the reply, actually I sorted it out by deleting the MoutedDevices key in the registry and rebooting to let it rebuild. It now show the 3 drives as it should. I've been changing disks around and changing drive letters so maybe that was why. Thanks again.
