You have to hide “/“ first

You should remove the SYSTEM folder too.  It has no photos in it so you can "remove" it from Lightroom.

Thank you. Have removed all those folders now.
Hiding ‘/‘ didn’t promote the EHD folder though - the image was included into another folder and EHD folder disappeared? I would like the EHD folder to stand alone outside the Mac HD Folder.

Did you restart Lightroom? If a drive is shown as a folder, and you correct that by using 'Hide This Parent' on the Volumes folder, then you usually have to restart Lightroom before it shows correctly.

Thank you - sorted now! Phew!
WORKFLOW for other readers:
1) Select '/' , Right Click and select 'Hide This Parent'
2) Select EHD in Volumes Folder, Right click and select 'Hide This Parent'
3) Quit Lightroom
4) Restart Lightroom and EHD will have its own Folder

To clean things up even more I would Hide “users” too.
