    Two Music Folders same content


    So I've somehow managed to have made two music folders when trying to map download and music folders on my new system.
    They point to the same location but are have different icons. If I change the location through properties dialog box they both update.


    Any help?Click image for larger version.

    From looking at the icons, it appears that you have moved the Music to both Music and Downloads. The icon with the down arrow is usually the downloads folder.

    thanks for the reply.

    There's no music folder repeated in the Music or downloads folders.

    So what i have is two folders labelled music that both point to the same location.

    Not sure how to resolve it.

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    Sounds like (no pun intended) in your efforts to map your folders, you have one of them as a symbolic link. It would appear and act just like the real thing. Check the properties carefully on both, and see if one has a tab for link properties. Just a guess.

    Do they both have a Location tab in Properties?
