I notice when I download a movie from The Video Store that there are two copies - One in Videos folder and one in the Android/Movies folder.
Curious why both files are downloaded - are they redundant? Obviously this takes up twice the space and since they're large files it becomes significant.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I noticed duplicate files when copying files as a backup... and it debits the PB memory twice as much too I think, so I assume it's a duplicate file.
Both files have same name/size/date.
Maybe I don't understand the file management on the PlayBook? Here's copies of what it looks like when connected to my laptop...

I'm being told those are virtual links and don't really take up extra space on the device. If you delete one it will delete the other. If you copy/paste using Windows it will double them up. Not sure just what the BB Desktop Software does when it makes a backup, though. It shouldn't duplicate them.
