Hi I'm using Windows 7 Home Professional 64 bit and have got into a mess with Libraries/Folders etc. I'm trying to sort it out but am scared that I might delete all my data. I don't know which listing is actually my data and which is just some form of shortcut. Please excuse length of this post but I don't know how else to explain the problem.
I have 2 hard drives on my PC, Drive C has all the program files and drive D has all my data folders/files.
When I click on the Libraries icon, in the left hand panel I have the following:
Favourites (which I'd like to get rid of - there's nothing except empty folders under it)
Under Desktop I have:
Libraries (which has nothing except categories under it all of which have nothing in)
I must have created PAG Desktop (it refers to my desktop machine rather than the screen desktop as that is the name which appears under Homegroups on my Windows 7 Laptop but can't remember how - I was possibly trying to rename the 'user' from c:\users\user - Windows 7 was put on PC by hardware firm when they repaired my PC and I changed from XP to 7, they put 'user' on but I'm the only person who uses the PC)
Under PAG Desktop I have:
App Data (which has folders Local, Locallow and Roaming under it)
Contacts (which just has User.contact under it - can I delete this? there's no info in it)
Data Drive D (which appeared after I tried to move My Music from C to D. When I try to restore My Music to C using Default Location (C:\Users\User) I get a message saying Folder Redirection Failied - Failed to build the list of regular subfolders under D:\System Volume Information Access denied. It has everything showing which is listed under Data Drive D when I look at Data Drive D under computer)
Data Drive D (a second copy - comments re first copy apply to this one as well)
Desktop (which has just 2 shortcuts in it and not all the shortcuts which appear on the computer screen desktop)
Downloads (which has loads of downloads in it)
Library (which just has a preferences folder in it)
My Pictures (which has nothing under it)
Saved Games (which has an empty Microsoft Games folder under it)
Searches ( which has a copy of Saved Games)
Under Computer I have:
Program Drive C
Data Drive D - which has Downloads (which appear to be the same as the Downloads under PAG Desktop, My Pictures, My Music, My Scans etc)
Can I delete the 2 Data Drive D's under PAG Desktop without getting rid of the Data Drive D under Computer? I really don't want three references to the same set of folders - I'm pefectly happy working with the folders under Computer.
I'd be really grateful if someone could at least point me in the right direction to a tutorial or something which will help me soret out the mess I've made. I really can't face reformatting the drives and reinstalling all my programs etc, then restoring all the data from backups.
