Hi, I recently built a new pc with the following drives attached,
C - 500mb m.2 (boot)
D - 1tb SSD (main use)
E - 4tb HDD (storage)
Almost every time I boot my pc explorer opens up my E drive and all my desktop shortcuts to that drive are blank white squares (mostly Steam apps), I can rectify this by going to the default apps settings but its annoying doing it every time. Its almost like it discovers it as a new drive every time I startup.
I also have noticed this -
I am not sure if this is the cause of the problem and do not know why it thinks I have 2 physical 4tb drives, I only have 1 but cannot remove the other from storage spaces as it says I will lose all data on it. Also I named my E drive as Backup but occasionally Windows changes this to Raid so I have to rename it again but this is rare.
I built an almost identical pc for my son at the same time and he has the exact same issue, I've looked online for a solution but have not been able to find anything so any help would be greatly appreciated.
NB - Might be worth mentioning that both E drives were transfered from our old pc's including the data if that makes any difference.
