    Duplicate folders in user directory after 1803 update


    Anyone else seeing this? The duplicates are actually OneDrive folders.

    You can right click on them and choose properties and check the location of them to see if they are in the same location. Sometimes during an upgrade Windows makes a backup of your personal files into another location.

    One points to the OneDrive Dir and the other is the standard User Dir.

    Deleting the OneDrive linked folder also deletes it within the actual OneDrive Dir.

    ah so you can right click on the onedrive one and unpin from quick access. Use unpin rather than delete.

    These aren't pinned quick access shortcuts. These are presented as actual folders with the user Dir.

    "These aren't pinned quick access shortcuts."

    Your screenshots show that they are under Quick Access menu (it's highlighted). Personally, I don't use Quick Access but expand This PC and OneDrive in the nav panel and you should see each of these separately. Also, it's more helpful if your screeners show contents of Properties/Location tab.
