Why so many folders when I do backup

after waiting the entire time for the backup software to add the files I want to the drive, I open the hard drive to find all my folders inside of no less than 7 other folders. What on earthl is this?

I want to get rid of all these folders but then the backup software will keep hiding my files inside of empty folders… anyone know how to get around this?


What backup software are you using?
