if you use a external harddrive - In Finder's Menu, select Go menu>Go to Folder, and go to "/volumes". (see quotes) Drives with an extra 1 on the end have a side-effect of mounting a drive with the same name as the system already think exists.if it look like the drive with the same name as the system already exists.Try trashing the duplicates with a 1 or 2 if there are no real files in them, and reboot.look at this site https://support.apple.com/en-za/HT203258..
