  1. Why 2 documents folders?


    I am trying to figure out why I see 2 of many profile folders, such as documents, music, pics, videos. I tried deleting one, and it deletes the other. They are not duplicates, but I cannot figure out what purpose this is serving. Anyone?

  2. every time I save documents, PDF specfically, windows is creating a new documents file, everytime. I have duplicate document files.

    why am I getting multiple document files every time I save a document. Duplicate files.

    I made 2 new files, save 4 documents in each file and now I have 4 duplicate document files.

    Any help you can offer is appreciated

    Duplicate Documents Folders

    There appears to be 2 or 3 "documents" folders on my computer:

    1. Libraries

    2. This PC

    3. One Drive

    The 'documents' folders in "This PC" and "One Drive" seem to be the same thing. However, the 'documents' folder in "libraries" appears to have entirely different files. Also, I tried to tell my computer to only save my documents to "This PC", and yet all
    of the documents in "This PC" are still constantly syncing with "one drive". Whereas, the 'documents' folder in "libraries" does not sync to onedrive. Why is this happening?
