Bug Description

Launcher - clicking on a Storage Device icon in the Launcher should focus the Nautilus window that is displaying the content from that storage device.

If there are two or more windows desplaying content from the storage device, a second click on the Storage Device Launcher icon should then spread all the Nautilus windows showing content from that storage device

After this fix, it treats hard disk partition as a removable storage. However If create a symlink of a folder in that partition, it focuses on main nautilus window. Very confusing.

Khyrshid: well, unfortunately there are no other ways to thandle cases like that...
