    Confusion about "MY PC" system folders and other folders


    My "My PC" window has seven system folders. Brink has an excellent tutorial on how to remove or restore them. What are their purposes? For example, is Documents supposed to automatically suck up any docx, pdf, etc. file? What would the consequences be if I removed one of the seven (Documents, in this case) or moved its contents to another folder and/or another drive? These are "system" folders. What does that mean. Can I merge other folders into them or vice-versa? My real-life problem is that I have four different folders called "Documents" scattered around multiple drives and in the cloud. I need to get these consolidated. The situation for "Pictures" is similar. Please teach me how to master these multiple folders. V 21H1 build 19043

    Hidden folders

    I installed `Kane and Lynch` on my PC twice in Program Files(x86) folder but I can`t find them (2 folders with game). But free space on my HDD is lower. So there`re those folders on my hdd. I use option `unhide` hidden folders but still can`t find them. Any suggestions? How can i delete those hidden folders?

    When I run istallation for this game I can see those folders in Program Files(x86) folde.

    I`m using Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
