Searching for a specific card, two always come up, one is archived?

When I search for a card, for the last week I always get two cards -- each with the same title, but when I open them up one says it is archived. I don't remember archiving a whole bunch of cards. I was playing around with creating another list, and I remember I tried to delete the extra list, but that's all I can think of. I may have saved the one list I have under another name to try to experiment with it. Or . . I'm not sure. I am sick of having to open up both cards to find the one I am looking for. And I am worried with the duplication I will accidentally use the archived card to save information on and then not be able to find it later if I get rid of the archived duplicate list. so it makes me nervous.

@Betty Peterson you can prevent the search from showing archived cards by including:


in the search terms. More info here:

If you want to prevent the archived one from showing up permanently you could delete it. When you click the card and see that it's archived, scroll down a bit and you'll see that the "Archive" button has been replaced with a "Delete" button. Just beware that deletion is permanent.
