Hi Guys, I am totally baffled as to why suddenly MyDocuments folder is now appearing in the My Computer window. My Computer used only to show the drives. I cannot move the folder, and if I delete any files from it, the file is also deleted from the the My Documents folder which appears in its usual place in the folder tree. Its almost as though it has cloned itself. Any suggestion would be welcome. Thanks.

On my computer, My Computer shows the drives, Shared Folders, and My Documents. The My Documents folder has always shown up in My Computer for me.

Using Windows XP Home

I don't know why it wouldn't have shown up at first and then suddenly appear there.

Thanks for the replies guys. You have me wondering now if I'm losing it! I can only assume I'd never noticed it there before.
