File and folder duplication

Hello,

I'm having a very weird problem with my Windows 7 Home Premium laptop. Everything that is saved in My Pictures gets duplicated into the My Documents folder too. If I delete the My Picture's files that are a duplicate into the My Documents, they also get deleted from the actual My Pictures folder.

This is eating a big space of my hard drive, and making file management very difficult. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance,

psn
