many directory and files are duplicated: Any tool to resolve that

Hello

Few month ago, I had problem with a hard disk. After files recupoaration, reinstallation then installation of a new SDD hard disk, I realize that all my directory has been duplicated many time

Is there any tool that I could use to replace in a proper order all my files and directory

Any info appreciated

Martin

What you are most likely seeing is the result of altering the permissions on those compatibility junctions. (Like Documents and Settings which is a junction to Users in Windows 7)

Obviously, logicearth, I have no idea of what really is my problem

I know that it started when I replaced my hard disk and problem has been worst after I tried to move my data file from SDD drive to Hard Disk

Is it a junction problem.... probably. My simple questions is
- Is it reparable?
- Is there any tool to do it?

I have created enough damage on my file system, I won't play with it blindly to increase my problem.

I admit, I'm not an expert, is it a junction problem... probably.

Hello

Here is a copy a portion of file path. I don't know how I could give you the whole one.

I have mark some duplicate folder that appear. Each one will contain file of the previous one + other that has been updated. Those are just examples. I thinks I have 4 sets of files on my new hard disk. Some files still present on my SDD drive.

A real mix-up

Turn echo off
make directory on c:\ named itsc1325
change directory to itsc1325
list OS version in ver.txt inside c:\itsc1325
append the volume information to ver.txt
list directory(wide format) contents of C: and output it to a file called dir.txt on c:\
copy dir.txt to c:\itsc1325
delete dir.txt from c: without it prompting you
pause the batch file
list the file attributes for contents of itsc1325 directory
make ver.txt read only
