    Unhappy Filesystem root and efi showns as external HDD in file explorer

    I've recently noticed that in the file bar/explorer filesystem root and efi shown as external HDD. It is kind of weird I don't know it does affect the system processes or not. Furthermore, usb drives are not shown up, but I run lsusb command i can see that usb drive is connected. Any insight or help are appreciated

    Re: Filesystem root and efi showns as external HDD in file explorer

    How many hard drives do you have attached?
    Could you post the output of either/both commands below which will show actual information on the drives?

    sudo fdisk -l
    sudo blkid
    How did you attempt to see if USB drives are attached? Generally, they are available under /media/username.

    The last highlighted line is the my usb driver name but somehow it does not show up in file explorer. Filesystem root and efi are recognized as external HDD.
