    Duplicate Documents folders
    « on: June 25, 2018, 02:35:05 PM »
    Out of the blue my computer shows two Documents folders. I'm reluctant to delete one of them because it might delete both.
    Anyone see this happen before? What can I do?

    You sure you didn't just open 2 instances of it and the focused side by side ? ?
    They are identical...i doubt they are duplicates if you know what i mean...

    Ahaaaa...just took a 2nd look...the 2nd one is shared...which means it aint a duplicate...it means it is shared with another drive/partition or PC...

    No worries...i'd leave both alone...1 on the left is the original BTW.

      Thanks, patio! It might have recognized my new tablet.
