I think I understand what you mean Jontommon although I don't have the answer, If I create for example 2 folders inside My Picures folder to keep family fotos and friends fotos separate, when I open up either of the folders I find all the pictues I have saved there but also another folder with the same name also containg all the same pictures. I also have a download folder with everything I have download [obviously], inside that folder is a folder also called download with the same files inside

This would have been better posted here and not e-mailed to me...

"I am having a house built and recording progress by taking pictures each day with my digital camera. When I downloaded three pictures this morning I found there are numerous copies(in some cases as many as 17) and also copies of copies in the folder containing these pictures. How do I prevent this happening? That is the question!"
