Formatting external SSD confusion


Hi
On Ubuntu Mate 18.04 LTS and recently formatted a 1TB external SSD as my primary work drive.

My confusion comes from the fact that when mounted on the desktop, when I access via any finder window what appears are 2 almost identically named volumes, 1 much smaller than the other.

in the attached screen capture.

Can anyone tell me what is going on? Did I format incorrectly?

Looks to me that you have only created a single partition of about 81GB, all the rest is unpartitioned free space (903GB).

GUI's seem designed to obfuscate - open a terminal and post this output.
Code:
sudo lsblk  -f
