Normal: Multiple Application Data foldes

Is this normal:

and this is how much space it's taking up:

Looks weird to me. I am the only user account on the computer.

Thanks,

No that is not normal. Did you try to delete the second AppData down?

Interestingly, when I looked at the application folder in Explorer, it was a shortcut. I erased it and that looks like it made things normal again.

You changed permissions that is why. Those folders with shortcut like arrows are junctions.

What are junctions again? Sounds pretty rural for an OS .

I installed a right-click take ownership script. Which I did for the whole OS, but think I did that a while ago.
