        I just finished cleaning out my contacts.  This is good.

        Now though, when I go to Contacts, I have two folders, “Contacts” and “Contacts – This computer only”.

        The latter is empty, but I cannot seem to remove it.  How can I remove this extraneous folder?

        Can you give some idea of the operating system, and the program?

        I think, from reading, that “Contacts” are stored in the IMAP folder, or so it appears, while “Contacts – This computer only” is then a separate file.

        I have my own separate file for Contacts that is the designated , and therefore don’t need either.  While I get that “Contacts”, being part of Office, stays, do I need the other around?

        I found the answer in a post by Diane Poremsky:
