In explorer appeared a kind of Mirror of one of my partitions on one of my File Servers. I don´t know how it got there.
How do I get rid of it without losing data in the original volume. If I delete a file in one, the other also loses the file as well.

Note:
It doesn´t appear in the Mapped drives or in disk management.

The big problem is the permissions are not on the new mirrored volume so the 100´s of shares would have to be created again.

There is an ability to set SUBST driver
Maybe you have it

SUBST [drive1: [drive2:]path]
SUBST drive1: /D

  drive1:        Specifies a virtual drive to which you want to assign a path.
  [drive2:]path  Specifies a physical drive and path you want to assign to
                 a virtual drive.
  /D             Deletes a substituted (virtual) drive.

Type SUBST with no parameters to display a list of current virtual drives.

Try do subst X: /D
