Entire Documents Folder In Recycle Bin
Don't know how this happened but I deleted a coulple of files from my Documents Folder (Documents, Music, Pictures, Recently changed, etc.), and the whole Folder ended up in the Recycle Bin. I now have an exact duplication of my whole folder in the Recycle Bin. If I delete a file from the copy in the Bin, it deletes it from the Folder on my desktop. The "Empty recycle Bin" option is grayed out. How do I get rid of this duplication? It's taking up about 3 GB of my hard drive so obviously I have somehow copied all my files to the recycle bin. What do I do???

Re: Entire Documents Folder In Recycle Bin
I suggest you back up all contents of your Documents folder elsewhere first.

Then delete such duplicate folders/shortcuts. Then replace the backups. Bont worry, you wont be able to delete the real My Documents folder as its a system folder.
