I'm not exactly sure if this is the correct place to post this question but here goes...

I am using Windows Vista and I've been noticing something screwy. Whenever I go into my "Downloads" folder I notice that there is a clone of "My Documents" folder, an exact copy of it! So...I thought it was silly to have 2 exact copies of "My Documents" thus I permanently deleted the copy that was located in my "Downloads". When I did that erased ALL of my REAL "My Documents" files!!! :) :) :)

I have no idea why this happened in the first place, I never set my folder up to have an exact back-up in my "Downloads" folder and then who the heck knew that if I deleted one it would delete the other as well! What the heck is going on, why'd that happen?! How do I fix this for the future???
