    2 my documents folders


    I was annoyed with the my music folder getting remade and read that if you go into it's properties and change it's location it will go away
    well I changed it to inside the my documents folder

    now I have 2 My Documents folders hehehe
    and when I delete one they both disappear along with all my documents
    this is even more annoying then an unused music folder
