Linked folders or something like that?
I managed to make a mess out of my "neatly" organized folders.

Not sure what I did, but now Music folder contain the whole content of
Documents folder. The catch is that if I erase or copy something to
Music folder same thing happens to Documents folder. It looks like Music
is like twin brother of Documents folder.

If I understand Music is somehow linked with my Documents. How can I
untangle it?

Regards!

Run this utility recursively on your profile dir under \users
or on the whole disk. See if it finds some links (a.k.a. junctions)
http://live.sysinternals.com/junction.exe
