Hardware showing up twice in Toolbox, materials not showing up at all

We recently upgraded to 2018 and then installed PDM standard. Sometime during this transition I ended up with TWO instances of hardware files showing up in my toolbox.  The screen shot below illustrates what I'm saying. How can I get back down to one for each type? I know there is a "Purge Unused Data" but I'd want some more info before using this "scorched earth" option


Additionally, back about a year ago I followed some great advice I got here and assigned a material to certain hardware in the toolbox. As you can see from the screen shot below, I made a custom material "ASTM F835 Alloy Steel" and assigned this using the Custom property definition dialog. And it worked PERFECTLY. Right up until we started using PDM. Now it shows up as "Material not specified". I have a feeling that these two symptoms have a root cause. Can anyone help me with this?
