Music Photos also going in to Games folder ?

I read something abot network and sharing that's why I posted here .

This is not for me and I responded in another forum and the posters says music and photos heep gererating copies in Games folder even after setting where to direct them to.

Any solution ?

I am trying to help a friend add music and photos to her Dell laptop. It is about 3 years old.
My question is why when I add the files to The Music and Photos folders does it also add a copy of all the files to the saved games folder?
I thought I had added them by mistake
So deleted then from the saved games
While also deleted them from the music and photo folders also.

Is this supposed to happen?

She has Vista.

When I look at Windows Explorer, I find my music under Libraries/Music/My Music. The actual path to the music is C:\Users\Public\Music, instead of C:\Users\G***\Music I did this on purpose when I set up my machine because I can share my music over my LAN to the PS3, etc.. easier.

Is it a possibility that the machine has been setup that way all along?
