I have a monthly limited connection at home, so I keep a RPI 3B at my grandparents' house since they have an unlimited connection and I swing by often. I have it functioning as sort of a download machine with (currently) only Deluge and uGet installed and I operate it via VNC Server. Logically, I have it connected to a hard drive where I keep everything.
I've used a WD My Passport 2TB hard drive for about 3 years now and everything has worked fine since I started all this, up until recently. The hard drive is named simply as "X", I have Deluge set up to download torrents directly onto it but recently this weird thing has been happening.
Basically, when I access
/media/pi there are 2 drives instead of one: one of them is X, the other is called X1 and I have no idea where it came from but it is the same drive. If I save anything onto X, it pops up on X1 too, you get the idea. The real problem here is the fact that
df on the terminal, tells me X has 9GB in size whereas X1 has around 1.8TB, this is a bit of a hassle and a mess but if I ignored it would be fine (in theory), the problem is, when I plug the hard drive into my Windows PC at home, Windows has a ton of problems trying to read the drive, I can't even access it since I get a
X: is not accessible message. I've run
chkdsk on it to try and fix it (to no avail), I've formatted it in many ways, many times and nothing seems to work, even though the RPI has no trouble accessing the hard drive.
Also, before anyone mentions it, it's not a partition issue. I've never partitioned this drive and I've checked with the disk managers on both Windows and Raspbian and all of the available space is attributed to one NTFS volume. (I'm running Raspbian Buster)
I appreciate any help and thank you in advance, I can supply more info if it's required.
