Are you referring to accessing through 'Libraries'?

If this is the case what you describe is exactly what you should see. The files / folders are not duplicates, rather they are indexed for easy access.

Hi Flogit. I suspect that Nigsy is correct. It would help us to be sure if you would post a screenshot. This link shows you how. http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...tml#post852738

This is how your Library layout should appear:

No problem Flogit. Libraries can be confusing for those new to Windows 7. If you have any further questions we will be glad to answer them if we can.
