I just updated to 8.4 and noticed the folders that LR uses to import photos taken on our iPhones have been "duplicated". There are the correct photos but 3 of my wife's are in one folder and a single one in another folder.

It's not a big deal, but I would like to clean in up without messing anything up ;)

Thanks!
Nicholas

Those screenshots are of collections, not of folders. Can you post a folders screenshot?

Those screenshots are (quite rightly) volumes in the Folders panel. If it was me, I'd just drag the photos out of those folders into "normal" folders, then remove any leftover folders with 0 photos. That'll remove the extra drives. You might also set a custom download location for mobile photos in Preferences > Lightroom Sync tab.

Oops sorry Victoria, windows user here I am not used to naming drives and devices...
