    Multiple files with same name


    Here's one that is a total mystery to me: The last couple of days I have been working on a file made with MS Word. It was a letter that I have been working of for a couple of days. I edited and changed the file several times and put it in two different folders. I wasn't sure which folder one of them was so I did a search with an app I've had for years called My Power Desk and it does a great job of searching. So in the search box I typed the name of the files. I couldn't count the number of places that it found the file but I'm sure there were hundreds of them. And in the path of many was "temporary internet files". So I than ran CCleaner. After it finished cleaning, there were only 6 instances of the file. This is a total mystery to me. First why so many in Temporary Internet files and why so darn many of them in so many places.

    :)

  2. Multiple folders and files with same name suddenly appearing.

    Why is this happening. It starts off wiuth me trying to consolidate my files and having them all have the same stuff in the folers on C: F: and USB J: drives. For instance each have a folder named pictures. But each one has a different amount in them so
    I try to make them all have everything instead of parts in each. Then this happens.

    Then I try it with my music and albums folders and boom. here we are again.

    there needs to be some added info on the folders that are just images of the main one on the drive.. like pictures(image of drive c:\pictures) or something similar or this is going to agrivate a billion people. I kept deleting on folder and it would keep
    reappearing and filling up with files.. after a few min I had more stuff in my recycle bin than you could even imagine. took forever to empty it.

    Why is this happening and how do we stop it.. I don't even really like the idea my my files being in multiple areas on my computer. 1 is enough! I cant imagine a computer even wanting to work like this and its probably why its freaking out. You guys making
    this are giving our computer aneurisms and strokes. Can we please take this back to windows 7 file explorer and not this scrambled mess only a hoarder would love?
