You are absolutely correct. I see system reserved d: and a local drive f:, which are both internal drives.

I can continue accessing the Toshiba drive, now drive t:, from Windows Explorer as well as by entering t: into the run dialog box.

As you say it is very mysterious.

Microsoft Defender is my only security software installed and running.

The external drive, btw, has more than enough space. Windows Explorer reports 1.24 TB free out of 1.36 TB.
