have an extremely weird problem occuring nowadays. i'm not sure why, but somehow my copy/paste function is now semi 'hard-linked' to my downloads folder. i'll try to explain it here.


Downloads folder : F:\Downloads

which contains a bunch of random files and folders. 



Let's say I choose to copy 2013.docx from C:\ to E:\, now it copies the ENTIRE Downloads folder together with 2013.docx to E:. 


This doesn't happen all the time, but MOST of the time it does and it irritates me - because i have to delete the redundant copy of my Downloads folder. 


sure, i might be able to get away with it by renaming the Downloads folder, but i want to understand WHY it happens and HOW i can prevent it in the future.
