ZTree creates only 1 'List' of files/paths Per Drive Letter.
So splitting (f8) the same drive letter links the logging, making them Dependent.

To force independence,
.. On Local drives use the Subst command at the root level to create an independent list
.. On Network drives use Net Use command to the same level as the original network use command.

In both cases, you create a new Drive Letter which ZTree handles independently.

Be aware, changes made on one side is NOT shown on the other; they are independent and the system can get confusing. Re-Logging on the opposing side is needed to reflect changes to be seen on the each other.
