I followed Microsoft's directions, going to Control Panel > Users and utilized the wizard to choose the settings to save to my profile. The settings I selected were:
"Desktop folder and Documents menu"
"My documents folder"
and then I selected "Create copies of the current items and their contents".
Mycomputer then took about 10 minutes to copy or save files.
Is it possible to "undo" this action and "delete" the copies (but of course retain the original documents/folders/favorites) so that I may free up hard disk space? Or, put another way, is it possible to restore the machine to the way it was prior to this activity (I have not done a backup in ages)?
Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide.
