Wife’s 2019 MBA came back from major AppleCare repair. Mojave had been replaced by Monterey & we lost a lot of stuff.

However, there’s a weirdie, too. She has two HDs, as pictured.

Font Electronic device Clock Machine Gadget


Get Info reveals one is running 12.2.1, the other 12.2.2. How is this even possible?

AppleCare tells me this can’t be fixed without reformatting the entire disk. Apple tells me the extra HD is not taking up any extra space. On a 256GB SSD, that matters.

Apple tells me I can hide them. But that’s both of them, giving wife no easy access to her main disk.

What a pain, eh. Anybody ever seen this before?

I'm not sure what's your exact problem is with her Mac or if there really is one, but maybe have a read here in case it can help explain things:
Add, delete, or erase APFS volumes in Disk Utility on Mac

I understand that a lot of things changed when Apple's switched to APFS starting with Catalina I believe. That includes how the various volumes are displayed and what is stored in each.

Some of the other Mac forums can probably explain things better for you such as Mac-forums.com.

I'm still happy using Mac OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks and most things are still as they always were.
