    I think it has something to do with syncing other devices.

    I tried moving one of each to another drive and it ended up making duplicates of those as well!

    It's hard to pin point!

    Good try, Shawn. I did that. The deleted ones are gone when I reboot. However, when I recreate the deleted one, it duplicates itself.
    What I did notice when I rebooted is that at the logon screen, there is mention at the bottom left screen of two users: my own and 'default user'. I wonder if that messes up things. Because I never did create such a user.

    Didn't mean to ignore you, Edwin. Thanks for your input. Off hand, I am not syncing anything, except that I use this laptop with a microsoft account. The other PC has a local account and runs 10074 does not have those duplications.

    Gallicbear,

    You might create a new account to use instead.

    I did. It wasn't too hard or time-consuming. I could copy files between the two users. And I got rid of the useless 'default' user, which didn't even have its own user folders.
    Thanks, Shawn.

    Anytime. Too bad the old account was toast.

    But I don't mind challenges that teach you different things.
