    Duplicate Documents folder Under This Pc


    Hey all
    Version 1511 installed. Other fixes don't work. I tried removing documents from this pc with the reg file. Also didn't work.
    With time, number of documents folders increase. The folders go away when clicked into another folder or a new explorer window opened.

    Multiple Duplicate Folders under This PC in File Explorer

    I have the same problem - However, if I close Windows Explorer and reopen it, only one "Documents" folder exists under "This PC" and all of the duplicate "Documents" folders are gone. If I leave Windows Explorer running, the duplicate "Documents" folders
    start reappearing.

  3. Multiple Duplicate Folders under This PC in File Explorer

    After I installed OneDrive when I open up File Explorer (Windows Explorer); on the left side I now see:

    1 "OneDrive" with appropriate folders underneath. That is good.

    2. Underneath OneDrive is "This PC" with similar folders underneath, also good so far.

    3. And below that is my "C:" drive. Standard stuff.

    One of the folders I moved to OneDrive is my Documents (C:\Users\Grant\Documents). If memory serves me correctly I just dragged and dropped the folder into OneDrive folder in File Explorer. As a result If you look at C:\Users\Grant\Documents it is now empty
    but the content can now be found at C:\Users\OneDrive\Grant\Documents. So now the "Documents" folder is underneath "OneDrive" not "This PC". This is all makes sense.

    Here is the strange part. When looking at the left side of File Explorer I quite often see multiple duplicate folders named "Documents" that are under "This PC". If I click on any of them they are duplicates of the same folder under "OneDrive". This problem
    is more of an nuisance than anything else. The number of Documents Folders underneath "This PC" folder varies from one (this is what should be there) to about 8 folders. The are all named "Documents" and with same content and green checkmark as found under
    "OneDrive/Documents".

    If I click on "This PC" on the left side of the windows, on the right side of the window it always shows only one "Documents" folder. So the duplicate files only occurs on the left side of the File Explorer window.

    How do I get rid of these duplicate folders on the left side of the File Explorer windows underneath "This PC"? Rather vebose post but wanted to make it clear.
