Default shared files ?

my canon software puts all my pix into "my pictures"
doing a search I noticed that I had multiple copies [shared files?]
the other copies are in administrator and admin my pictures
are these actual multiple copies?
If I moved them would that solve the problem or can I turn off the ? sharing

I'm not certain, but from what you're saying, I don't think there are actually multiple copies of the pictures. When you share a folder, it appears, with its contents in the files of whatever other user it is shared with.

How do you download the images from the camera? ... and do you delete the images from the camera after downloading?

If you don't delete the images after downloading them each time, they will then be downloaded again making an additional copy for each download. Also, if you specify a different location/folder from download to download, then copies can also proliferate.

You can either delete all thru the camera's menu system, or reformat the memory card.
