Hi

 

Are you seeing this message in the Libraries?

 

The Libraries contain a mirror copy of files that are located in other folders on the system.

 

Example:

 

In the Libraries if you open the Pictures Library, you will see the files that are contained in the C:\Users\your name\My Pictures folder.

 

You can remove a Library or remove a folder in a Library without effecting the files in the actual folder.

 

See the following links for more information.
