I am wondering if it would be normal for a Windows network folder to still exist after downloading Mint 17 after using the option to overwrite the whole disk? Not side by side with Windows.

I just noticed this. When I follow this string ;   file system folder/dev folder/   I then get a list of regular green folders  but listed after that i have a bunch of what looks like text folders with a "X" at the top right corner in which I cannot open. One of them is labelled "btrfs-control". After looking at the Wiki I have no idea why this would be present. When I pull up properties under "Type" it says "Character Device (inode/chardevice)

Well I wish I could help but cannot answer these questions.  I would however use gparted to see what the partitions look like to see if there is still an extra partition.  If nothing else it will be good to post a pic. of gparted so that someone can view and help.  I assume you know to go to "Menu" > type in gparted > type in password > wait for it to come up > if you have more than one drive you will need to click the upper right corner to select which one you want to view.

Then go to Menu > Accessories > Take Screenshot > Choose current window or something to that effect > Take shot.  

Your other screenshot did not work, if you need help with this ask.

So it is normal to have a filesystem that has a folder named "Root" that i am unable to access?

Yes.  And by default Linux makes it hard to access these folders for security reasons, Only Puppy Linux runs as root. Running as root is not a good idea on Linux.

 

The "root" account is the most privileged account on a Unix system

 

If you must open those folders ( and I suggest you do not mess with them) open terminal and type

gksudo nautilus

If you do this and break something do not come here complaining.

 

If you do not have gksu installed.

sudo apt-get install gksu

also do this.
sudo apt-get install nautilus
 
An example of how you would use the command.
 
gksudo nautilus /etc/sysctl.conf
 
Running this command will open /etc/sysctl.conf
  as root so you can change the swappiness value.
