This is something that must be unique to Windows 10. When it first came up, I had posted here but I can't find the thread. I now have more information that should help resolve this issue.
Basically, when I had used a previous operating system on Windows (the most recent one I had had before purchasing this new computer was Vista) and wanted to copy a folder from a flash drive, I would simply drag the folder to the location I was interested in copying to. I can still do that with Windows 10 but have a new complication: I had the following folder with the Path This PC > (E:/) > Mark > USB Drive > Mark > PAC >Shipments and was working with this file within the folder: 80115 (autosaved). I see part of the problem already: I had assumed that this folder was on my flash drive (E:/) and it appears to be on This PC, meaning it is on the computer itself. It is also present on my flash drive (E:) and I was trying to copy it from the flash drive to the following folder on the computer: This PC > (E:/) > Mark > USB Drive > Mark > PAC > Shipments.
I'm not sure what had happened but somehow the referenced Flashdrive file was copied to the computer and has created a separate folder. So now I have the following tree on the computer:
Shipments (This is the folder with the path: This PC > Mark > PAC > Shipments)
Shipments (This is the folder with the path: This PC > (E:/) > Mark > USB Drive > Mark > PAC > Shipments)
When I look at my Flash drive folder path for this file, it also reads: This PC > (E:/) > Mark > USB Drive > Mark > PAC >Shipments
(which is the identical folder name for the second Shipments folder directly above).
Here's my question: I only want the Folder This PC > (E:/) > Mark > USB Drive > Mark > PAC >Shipments in my E:drive not in the This PC Folder because I simply want it to stay on the flash drive. Otherwise I have two identical Shipment folders on the PC with two separate paths.
I right clicked on This PC > (E:/) > Mark > USB Drive > Mark > PAC > Shipments) and the delete option didn't come up. I want to delete that folder from the computer but not from the flash drive and am not sure how to do this. I don't want to play around with it and end up deleting the folder from my flash drive as I'm not sure how to fully navigate with Windows 10 at this time, so I had thought I had better ask.
