I updated Lightroom Classic (MacOS) to 9.0. I'm running MacOS Catalina 10.15.
I don't exactly know when it happened, but at some point, LR Classic started to show multiple drives in the import window. I only have one drive on my Macbook Air ("Macintosh HD") and up to a certain point, it has shown only this one. Now it shows three (3) versions of the drive - the first two are very similar in content, the third one is empty (I cannot expand it by clicking on the triangle button).

Is this a known bug?

This is a known issue with Catalina, that will be corrected in a future update of Lightroom.

It exists since the disc commits SSD of Mac is formated in APFS, these are normally hidden files but since LR Classic reveal! Do not take into account it, on the contrary Adobe, enquire of Adobe how afterwards not show them!

They've known about it since Catalina came out...there are additional issues as well.  Not going to wait around much longer for Adobe to fix this before I head over to another platform and cancel my Adobe subscription.  I have a business to run and don't have the time to fool around with these issues.

Catalina was announced (in beta) on June 3, 2019 and in public release on October 7, 2019.  If everything else (92 apps) works on my computer under Catalina, when is Adobe going to release a Catalina-stable version of Lightroom?
