Last night I downloaded a torrent of Marx Brothers movies, and during the night I awoke, saw the torrent was completed, and shut down my pc.
This morning when I booted up, the contents of my /home directory (directories and three videos) were on my desktop.
I opened my /home directory and the content was still in there, these are doubles. When I try to move the desktop ones to the Trash the ones in the home directory are also moved there. They appear to be linked.
Also, several files that were on my desktop are gone.
I used Timeshift and restored the system to the day before, that didn't work, then I restored it to two days prior, still no change.
Can someone shed some light on this problem and help me resolve this please?
I run Linux Mint 19 Tara, Cinnamon 3.8.9, kernal 4.15.0-36.
