Let me give you a scenario and please explain to me whats happening?  On google drive I have 4 folders called Clients, Forms, Apps and Checks.  They all show up on my google drive just fine and I'm sharing it with others.   Somehow it seems the Clients folder is also located in the Forms folder and its certainly the same one.  How is it that its showing up as a main folder in My Drive but at the same time located in the Forms folder?  Is this a sharing or permissions issue or is it marked as a favorite folder somehow?  How do I fix this issue.

The second folder is a shortcut. You can create a shortcut with SHIFT+Z.
To delete you have to make right click --> Details--> X from location you want to delete.

But this occurrence is also in the web portal.  Does that still apply?

Let me add this.  This came up because one of the users "deleted" their Clients folder on the main part of My Drive, but it still appears in their Forms folder.  For the rest of us, we see it in both locations.

Although I cannot fully understand what you mean, I the way to delete the one copy without delete the other is to make the above process.
drive will show you all locations and youwill delete the one you do not know.
If the files are little make a backup first.
