Windows 7: Contents in My Documents are both in My Documents and My Music.

Contents in My Documents are both in My Documents and My Music.

I can't say when this started to happen, but for some reason all my stuff in My Documents folder (word documents, notepads, game stuff, etc) is also in My Music folder. I have never copied the contents in My Documents to My Music, so I don't know how they got there.
And it can't even be solved by just simply deleting the document files from My Music folder. I tried that but not only did it delete the copied files from the My Music folder, but is also deleted them from My Documents folder. Fortunately I just recovered it all from my Recycling Bin, but I don't understand why it's doing this. It's almost like the My Documents and My Music folders are sharing the same stuff, but it's only with My Document's files.

Are you referring to the Library folders named "Documents" and "Music"?

LiliumSnow: Notice here that ThrashZone is talking about the Library folder called "Music".

I fixed it now. I had to right click Music (and yeah, I did mean "Music" folder, oops), select 'Properties', then removed the unwanted folders from the Library Locations section.

Properties or Locations link would open the same basic window where removal can be done,
Cheers.
