Windows 7 "Documents" & "My Documents" folders identical
Posted on 2011-02-18
In migrating from my old XP PC I copied the old PC's "My Documents" folder to the new (64-bit Windows 7) PC's "Documents" folder.
Now I have a "My Documents" folder located under the Windows 7 "Documents" folder and both folders have the same 1200 files in them.
Not knowing how that happened I then tried to move the files in "My Documents" up 1 level to "Documents" but recv'd an error that they are in fact the same folder!
A bit of research shows "Documents" is not really a folder but a library.
Needless to say, having 2 identical "folders" located one inside another is awkward and unwanted.
I'm sure there is more than 1 way to skin this cat... What I want is all those files from my old "My Documents" folder in my new Documents "folder".
