    Windows Explorer Help with Duplicate Folder Links


    Not sure how to describe, but will do my best.

    So i rebuilt my PC yesterday after fitting a new HDD. Basically previously on a physically different HDD I had all my "My Documents", "Pictures", "Music","Downloads" & "Videos" folders in a onedrive folder which then sync'd automatically with onedrive.

    So last night I right click, properties, Move the existing above folders which were pointing to C:\Users\Blah to the onedrive locations that already existing on my D:\ Drive. Easy Peasy...

    But on the left hand panel of windows explorer, I now have 2 shortcuts for each of the above, all the folders are pointing to the D:\Drive as I would have expected apart from the fact that there is now 2 my documents, 2 pictures...etc..etc..

    Is there a way to tidy this up and bring it back down to just 1 shortcut for each folder

    After a few restarts all of that should be back to normal.
