    Random Folder Duplication

    So every now and then on my C:/ drive I get a folder called "Program" and it mirrors my "Program Files (x86)" folder. (Its a hardlink) It happens with other folders too. I'm kinda baffled at finding whats causing this. Anybody here have any tips to root out the cause?

    I think you misunderstood me. I am aware of the purpose of the two folders. What happens is I get a third folder called "Program" that is a hardlink of "program files (x86)" It also is happening to a couple other locations.
