1) It's impossible to answer such a question without more detail. What Debian version are you using? What desktop environment? Do you know what you installed / changed that made these 'hard drives' appear? When you say you tried to remove them, by doing what? What happened? If you click (or double click) on them to open them, what opens? Is there a menu if you right click on them?

2) "Hello .. I need help plz" is not a good name for a thread. Pretty much everyone posting a thread needs help, so you should describe the problem in the title - then the right people (who know the answer, or are looking for it in future) can find it.

Send a link to a screenshot. Just upload it somewhere, and I'll have a look...

Try going it to Desktop properties or settings (possibly through a right click on the Desktop), uncheck 'Show Devices on the Desktop'...if there is such an option, you may have to dig around for it, most DEs have that option. This question was too much rocket science for the purple wonders.

If you like, start a Debian derivatives forum somewhere else.

This isn't it.

@ Confuseling..

Debian is Debian, and that issue could just as well happen in stock Debian, as in Kali. No need to bash people for trying other distros. It benefits Linux as a whole, and that includes Debian. Only the most lazy linux users stick to one distro.

At what point do you draw the line? Is Mint Debian? What about Ubuntu?

This is a Debian forum, not a Debian and its derivatives forum. Having people post about any number of incompatible systems with different stock configurations would be complete chaos. If people ask questions about derivatives they will be moved to offtopic, and the poster will have the right forum pointed out to them.

Quote me doing that if you can... I'll save you the trouble of searching: you can't.

Why? I run pure Debian stable Xfce, on a dual SSD Raid 0 no less. But when I see an obvious answer to an obvious question, I just answer, unlike the power tripping purple (wannabe) gods here that just run around admonishing people and editing posts. I do see your point but this forum has become so negative, I don't like coming here much anymore. When I have a problem, 90% of the time my answer is found OUTSIDE of this now sad forum, so your high-horse is unwarranted. :P :lol:

If it works, don't fix it. That's not lazy. That's smart!
May the FORK be with you!
