drives not being read

Bridge is not reading 3 of my external hard drives.  In the screenshot, only the first drive is being read in Bridge.  File Explorer is showing that the G drive has a folder (with subfolders and files) but the G drive in Bridge, selected, shows no folders or files. Same for the F and H drives.  Why is this?  Thanks.

Your drives are listed twice there. What do you see in Windows Explorer?

I don't see my drives being listed twice in Bridge - there are 4 of them, E, F, G & H.  I do see them listed twice in Explorer.  See screenshot below.  Not sure what the signifiance of this is.

If Windows doesn't see the drives correctly, I have to wonder if Bridge is going to? I'd talk to a Windows tech to get any system issues fixed and then look at Bridge.

Thanks.  Actually, Windows is not seeing the drives incorrectly.  It's breaking them out under "This PC" and then showing them as drives along with This PC in the overall tree structure (see screenshot) when This PC is twirled up.  I do think there is an issue with Bridge.  However, I won't sweat it.  I don't really use Bridge except to see my RAW thumbnails - which Windows can also show me.
