When I open up disk manager I see two entries each for c:,d:,e:,f: and g: partitions.
I have an efi system with a GPT disk. Windows 7, Ubuntu and CentOS6 all installed in various partitions. There are a number of other partitions but only those with drive letters are duplicated. But only one instance has the filesystem type.

At a lost how to got about fixing this.
