    I know this is probably a ridiculous question but it's driving me crazy... I accidentally dragged the icon at the top of the "Document" folder onto the desktop, thus creating a new folder. I assumed it was an alias that I could delete, but it will not delete because the "database" and "normal" files are in use. Will I have to live with 2 document folders...?

    sorry for the late reply, and you've probably already figured it out by now,

    I just recreated what you said you did, and for me, the original documents folder location (in the home folder) was fully transferred to the desktop. And no, it would not let me delete it, but I was able to simply more it back to the home folder with no problems. It is odd that you made a complete new copy,
    are you still having trouble with it?
