    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?
