Help!

I browsed an image of my C drive using phantom drive E. Shut down improperly somehow. File explorer now 'remembers' drive E but crashes when I try to right click on it.Disk management etc. cannot see it.  How can I get rid of it please?

I didn't think Reflect mounts persisted across restarts even after improper shutdowns, but try launching Reflect, going to the Restore tab, and under "Restore tasks" directly under that tab, clicking the "Detach" option.

Thanks - before I received this, I tried shutdown/restart which had no effect. I then did a 'serious' shutdown by holding the power button for a few seconds - when I restarted, the PC started loading windows updates, after which the problem had gone away. SO, it could have been the power down OR the updates, but in any case it worked. Thanks for your reply - it looks to me as a viable alternative solution.
