in the My Videos folder I find a couple of videos but the rest is just a mish mash jumble of basically anything and everything I have on my laptop. All of my art is in there (even though I have a separate folder named portfolio).Every photo is in there. All my notepad files and mp3 files. Really every possible thing that's on my laptop is in this folder. So I start sending files from there to the recycle bin thinking somehow these are all duplicates. Luckily I found out before I permanently deleted anything that the items in this folder are NOT duplicates. Well they are but when I move them to the recycle bin they also delete from their original folders!
So, I restored everything. Now when I run a search for something, let's say one of my art photos, I find it is in two locations, it's in my Portfolio folder AND my videos folder. If I delete it from My Videos folder it's also completely gone from my Portfolio.
