    I have already mounted a hard drive about two months ago and it still shows up in the "Format/Mount a new Hard Drive" section of the cPanel.

    Now the problem is I had my server admins add another HD and now two HDs show up in "Format/Mount a new Hard Drive" section

    I dont know which one is which. How can I distinguish this?
