Windows 7: File and folder duplication

File and folder duplication


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,

Hello psn, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the default locations of these two folders may be able to help afterwards.
