Sorry if this answer is here but I couldn't find it.

As you can see in the images I have two Deke folders and everthing I save to my one under C:\Users\Deke goes to Desktop\Deke. I delete something out of one and it is gone from the other one. It acts like a mirrow backup.

What to do?

I haven't posted in awhile and it looks like you can't post an image directly from your pc.

When I click on Windows Exployer I see :

Desktop
Deke
Public
Computer
Sxxxxxxxxx5 (C):
DOCS
Programs Files
TOSHIBA
Users
Deke

I can expand both Dekes out and they have the same sub-folders.

I am running as the Administrator and no other user accounts show up in the Control Panes under System.

Sorry about the mess.

PS-Bare with me as I made the jump from W98se to Vista Home Premium at the age of 68.

Guess I didn't look hard enough as I think I found the answer and if it is correct I will leave these duplicate folders alone.

According to the answer of the poster in the following link they acutally don't use the same resources but are like a shortcut(his term).

Does his answer seem correct to you?
