Hi

I used the upgrade assistant to upgrade to Windows 11pro. Everything went well and everything seems to work fine, except.....

if you take a look at drive G it will show it as a shortcut type of an icon, well at least it has the shortcut arrow there to a local SSD drive.
My other NVME drives, and all my network or mapped drives are showing as they should.
I have my D and G drives, SSD. My C and E are NVME. All are showing fine within Device Manager etc and all work as expected.

After noting the above I did delete the file IconCache.db within my account and logged out and back in, still the same.

Not a big issue as such, just strange that the one drive has that shortcut type icon associated with it.

any ideas..?

Drive Manager seems fine, no issues with the drive etc....

All sorted, someone kindly helped me from another forum - it isn't a shortcut icon but an indication that the drive is being shared elsewhere.
I forgot that it is indeed shared on another PC - hence the green share icon.
