    My administrator name is RAY and directly under the DESKTOP folder there is
    a folder identified RAY that contains numerous folders (10,201 W/1.3GB)
    Further down under C:\USERS\PUBLIC is another folder named RAY that has
    duplicate copies of all the above referenced files in addition to a folder
    titled APP DATA that contains an additional 8,075 folders w/202MB. Any
    change to a folder in either of the RAY folders makes a mirror image change
    to the other folder. Why are there duplicate folders? And can I get rid of
    one? I tried deleting the top level folder and when I rebooted it came back.
    Is this duplication normal???

    Ray spewed out this bit, and i'll scatter a few bits myself:
    If I understand you correctly, your user account folder shouldn't be on the
    desktop (Listed in the "Desktop" folder). And as far as it showing up under
    "C:\USERS\PUBLIC", you'd have to have your user account shared.

    I'd have a look at the share settings for your account.
