    Moving download folder


    Hi,
    I have moved the download folder (win10, 2004) from the C drive to a backup drive and now I have 2 download folders.
    When I delete files/folders in the original folder on C it also deletes the same files in the moved folder on the backup drive.
    Why is that?

    :)
