# Shared files appear in two or more paths on desktop

I shared a folder with a group. Some users say the files in the folder appear in the expected path, but the shared folder also appears in their top level directory, and a file within the folder also appears in the top level directory.

group: projmgmt
expected path: ~/nextcloud/eng/project1/design/feature description.odt

In addition to the expected path, we can see the folder and file in the top level path of each user in the group projmgmt.
top level path:
~/nextcloud/design/
~/nextcloud/feature description.odt

Is this the result of a setting I overlooked?
