I have successfully installed Ubuntu 18.04 along with Windows 10 on my computer (SSD 96GB + HDD 1TB). The SSD drive has two major partitions (excluding recovery and efi):

  • Windows partition (containing windows 10)
  • Ubuntu partition (containing /(root) and swap)

The HDD drive also has two partitions, one containing files (documents, music etc.) for windows while on the other partition is mounted /home.

enter image description here

If I use the disks tool however, I can see that inside the root folder there is another /home/my_username folder, which contains the same subfolders and files as the "real" /home located on the HDD drive.

How is this possible? Is it normal? How can I fix this?

    I'm unfamiliar with the "disks" tool that you mention, I'm also uncertain about what the two directories that you say seem to be identical are (one is /home/username, but the other?) – Kusalananda Oct 30 '18 at 9:36

Is normal don' t worry, the home is mounted in the HDD drive.
The home is located in /home/mattia but is mounted in the HDD drive, so is physically there.
Is like a link with the time this will be very clear to you.
