Mirror'd Storage Space causes duplicates of every file

Post by NibblyPig » Fri Apr 10, 2020 3:10 pm

I have a Windows Storage Space set up with two identical 3TB hdds. They're set up as a mirror, for redundancy.

All results on that drive appear twice in the list, presumably it's examining each HDD separately.

It is only a minor annoyance, but Is there any way to fix this behaviour?

Ensure that you don't have E: set up as both an NTFS index & also as a Folder index.
Tools | Options | Indexes -> NTFS || Folders

Thanks that fixed it. I don't know how it became a folder index.
