This only started recently though I don't know exactly when. I have a USB drive with a volume name "K8IE"
When I plug K8IE into my laptop, a phantom volume is created called K8IE x where "x" is a numbered instance of this phantom drive. So now underneath my local volumes I am showing K8IE, K8IE 1, K8IE 2, K8IE 3, K8IE 4, &c.
The files on this USB drive only appear under the last of the instances, e.g., if K8IE 4 is the highest instance, I see my files under it but no files appear under the other instances.
The volumes are persistent. If I remove the K8IE volume, all of the volumes remain showing in the Filezilla local drive window, even after a refresh. I cannot delete these bogus volumes, either.
I have a screen shot.
