    Default Duplicate community folders

    When I installed I directed program to D drive. It also installed some files C. All of the guidance here for installing add ons says to go to C and follow the paths till you get to community. I’ve installed numerous add ons which all work. I just discovered that on my D drive I have a community folder full of all the same add ons. Is the C version necessary? What is necessary on C?

    Yes, the C version is needed by Windows. Do not remove it! Windows has that goofy Library File structure, so that files appear to be in multiple places. The stuff on the C drive is like a directory to the actual install. In fact, if you put something in the C drive Community folder, it WILL also appear on the installed drive Community folder.

    Like your Document, Pictures or Music folders aren't actual files of those, it's just a reference to the real location of the those kinds of files.

Size:  8.0 KB folder symbol mean that the folder is actually on another drive?
