Windows 10 and redirected DOCUMENTS creates multiple documents folders

Windows 10 and redirected DOCUMENTS creates multiple documents folders

On Windows 10 if I redirect the "Documents" folder to the Drop Box folder I start to see multiple Documents folders.

Closing drop box will remove all the duplicate folders.

This seems to only happen on a fresh install of Windows. 3 other machines which were upgraded did not exhibit this problem.

Not only dropbox, I have it also, but I'm using Onedrive. Each time I paste an item in the documents folder a new documents link is added to explorer.

Everytime I close explorer and open again. The number of document folders return to 1.

Any updates for this issue yet? I am experiencing the same thing on my wife's computer.

Running Windows 10 Pro on Surface Pro 3.

As it's not restricted to Dropbox (the post above yours references OneDrive), it's likely a Windows issue, not a Dropbox issue. You should ask on the Microsoft forums.
