Windows 7: Duplicate Folders

Duplicate Folders

I just noticed that in my User's Files folder there were two My Documents folders, two Favorites folders, and two Desktop folders. One of each had the expected content, the other just had an ini file file I believe. I deleted the the latter set. Why were these there? Is this User's Files folder (which is in my desktop) display all content from both c:\users\myUser and d:\users\myUser ? I keep all my data on the D drive.

Actually yes, that's exactly where they came from. Apparently that desktop folder is a view to both the c and d drive myUser folder. Ok, so that brings up my next question why do I have a myUser folder on the C drive. When I first installed Win7 64 bit ultimate I specified the d drive as where my documents should go. Thanks
