[RESOLVED] v 4.3 Installation duplicate x2 folders

Postby sid16 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 5:52 pm

Dear All,

i ve formated my pc and proceed with new clean installation win10 pro, the v4.3 installation was done without any issue on the path C:Lookheed Martin\Prepar v4, however i noticed that i am having duplicated folders of (Prepar3D v4 Add-on & Prepar3D v4 Files) on both PC\Documents, and users\name\documents !! i used to have with v4.2 the both folders (Prepar3D v4 Add-on & Prepar3D v4 Files) only in users\name pc\documents, i am posting some pictures.

Hello,

If you right-click on PC\Documents and click Properties, you will see the Location as C:\Users\name. They're the same folder, just different ways to get there.

Regards,

Hello,

Yes, you should leave it as it is. If you delete it in one it will delete it in both, because they are both "pointing" to the same folder.
