It's a one user setup. but it seems to have 8 separate identical sections.
ie:
>08/03/2004 05:06 PM <DIR> .
>08/03/2004 05:06 PM <DIR> ..
>07/17/2004 09:17 PM <DIR> Administrator
>07/26/2004 09:56 PM <DIR> Administrator.SHEBA
>07/26/2004 11:16 PM <DIR> All Users
>07/26/2004 09:20 AM <DIR> All Users.WINDOWS
>07/21/2004 03:29 PM <DIR> ken
>07/26/2004 09:18 PM <DIR> ken.SHEBA
>08/03/2004 04:02 PM <DIR> ken.SHEBA.000
>07/26/2004 11:32 PM <DIR> KENSHE~1~000
every one of those directories has duplicated info in them. Then comes the fun
part, where is the info I want ?

How do I pare this down to one single directory ? And let the OS know there's
only one place to write stuff.

Hi,

A) You can't pair it down to just one. At the very least, you will need to
retain the Administrator, AllUsers, and your own account.

B) Perhaps you have reinstalled the system a few times?

Basically, you need to know which ones to delete. Start with your own
profile, as Windows will not allow you to delete the one in use.
