Windows 7: Another Windows 7 "Libraries" Move issue

Another Windows 7 "Libraries" Move issue

Good morning, 7 Forums.

Sorry for cross-posting (the post in General Discussions can be deleted).

I have another weird one here.

I tried to redirect the save location of my Libraries folders from the C: drive to my E: drive. I copied the folders I wanted to do this to from my User folder to a Folder I created on my E: drive (Libraries (E)). I then went back to the User folder and did the "right-click folder, Properties, Location, Move, Select a destination" routine for each folder I copied to the "Libraries (E)" folder I created on the E: drive.

I then created a test document and saved it. It was saved to the "Libraries (E)" folder but it also saved it to the C:-Libraries-My Documents folder as well. When I deleted the test document from C:-Libraries-My Documents folder it also deleted the test file from the E:-Libraries(E) folder on my E: drive.

I hope this description of my problem isn't too confusing but, what is happening and why and how do I stop it.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Mark
