Duplicate D Drive Listing in File Explorer

Last Modified: 2021-04-08
I noticed that there is a duplicate D Drive listing under Folders in File Explorer. Can someone tell me how did that happen? I know I did not do that. Also, is there a safe way to remove it  without losing any of my data on my Local Disc D Drive under Devices and Drives. See screen capture.

Thank you,
Basem Khawaja
