Duplicate My Documents folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was cleaning up files on my Windows 7 and somehow have created/gotten 2 folders called My Documents.  They are mirror images of each other - when I delete a file from one, it goes away in the other as well.  I created another folder and copied everything into the new folder.  Then I deleted both My Documents folders.  After a few seconds, they BOTH came back.  How is it possible to have two folders of the same name, and mirror images?  When I look at the Properties/Location, they are in the same location.  How can I get rid of one of them?

    I ran a program to disable the libraries function (which I hate with a passion normally reserved for ex-husbands and drunk drivers) so this isn't a library folder.  Thank heaven for that program that took those horrible, confusing libraries off my computer!

    Is this location a network drive? I've seen this issue when my documents
    folder is living on a HDS NAS filer... Which is incapable of supporting
    offline  files, too :)


    Mal ein GUTES Buch über GPOs lesen?

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?
    And if IT bothers me - coke bottle design refreshment :))

  • have you check the properties of the folder?

    check the properties of the folder click on the location tab, it will specify the location of the folder.
