I have a problem where the Documents folder which you find under %username%/Documents by default multiplies in the navigation pane. The situation is that I moved the Documents folder to D:/OneDrive/Documents, so the folder is directly under OneDrive. At some point I noticed that the Documents folder showed up multiple times in the navigation pane and they kept coming one by one.
Searching on the web for this problem resulted in nothing but later I noticed that the folders start multiplying at the exact same time as when OneDrive starts Syncing or Checking files in this folder. What is weird is when
I test this with the Pictures folder (which should be in the exact same situation) nothing happens so I wonder why it only happens to the Documents folder.
Below in the example you can see the multiple "Documents" folders and they vanish when you reopen the window:

The number of "Documents" folders has been over 20 before, this just depends on how long you leave the window open.
And the properties of this folder:
I've tried to relocate the folder outside of OneDrive to put it back in later but this didn't help much, only when it synced all files I noticed that the folder didn't multiply but later when 80% was done syncing it started appearing again. Might it be caused
by something in the Documents folder?
In the Event Viewer nothing related to OneDrive shows up so nothing to find there.
Hope someone has a idea on what might be causing this, thanks!
