Windows 7: Libraries > Documents ?

Libraries > Documents ?

My files are located C: > Users > Chris > My Documents. They are also located in Libraries > Documents but not in folders. When I delete a file from Libraries > Documents it is also deleted from C: > Users > Chris > My Documents. What am I not understanding about the Windows 7 file system?

TIA

The Libraries Documents link is only a junction point to My Documents. There is only one documents folder called "My Documents". Think of Libraries as a shortcut to folders.
This Libraries - Personal and Public User Folders and links in it will help to explain better than I can.
