    Hey Brink ... Yes .. setting it to NOT show hidden files and folders took care of the duplicate display ... I wonder if the "problem" lies in Windows File Virtualization".

    We ran into the virtualization problem when debugging one of our programs and its interaction with our database at a clients site.

    In a nutshell, windows (since to our knowledge Win7), will create virtual files which are tucked away and when you think your program is interacting with the database file you installed on the system, it is actually working with a virtual copy that is DIFFERENT for different users .... YIKES

    Google "File Virtualization Hell" and it should have a lot of discussion of the woes that FV has caused.

    Here is a good example ... http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-to-disable-virtualstore-in-windows-7/55dce284-0dcd-46af-892e-d2b9cf5bcff6?auth=1
    Hello clickman, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If these hidden duplicates have shortcut arrows on them, then they are only links used for backwards compatibility and are not actually duplicates.

    No shortcut arrows were on mine .... strange
