    Just formatted, and proceeded the same way as usual when installing programs. This time, something caused every folder in my C: drive to duplicate. Anyone experience this and know how to fix it? System Restore did not correct the problem.

    I would start again & not chose the quick format option. Go the long way round. Don't know what would cause duplicate folders. :confused:

    I never use the quick format option. Always delete everything and start from the beginning. :cool:

    Never heard of this problem before.

    Can you explain a bit more? Is it really every folder, two Windows folders, two Docs and Settings? When you create a new folder somewhere gets this duplicated also? Do they have the same names or are they numbered?

    Never seen that before, usually when XP has to create a duplicate it gives it a slightly different name, like WINDOWS. or similar but never the same name. How can it distinguish the correct WINDOWS folder from the incorrect one.
