In the cmd prompt this still looks right, however in explorer all i now see is 3 sets of "My Documents" folders in the d:\ drive
The same applies to photos and music.
Where can i turn off this annoying behaviour with in windows 7 so i see the real locations? This behaviour appears to be a recent change
I'm not too sure of how to turn the behaviour off, because this is condired to be a "feature" of the whole virtual folder solution. For example, I redirected "My Documents" to point to "F:\Documents", but when I go to F:, I see "My Documents".
The folder name hasn't changed, it's just displayed that way.
One solution that you can try is to create 3 folders:
- D:\User 1
- D:\User 2
- D:\User 3
And then in each, create a "Documents" folder (or "Pictures", "Videos", etc...):
- D:\User 1\Documents
- D:\User 2\Documents
- D:\User 3\Documents
And then redirect the "My Documents" folder for each user into the relevant location.
I'd also recommend creating each "User X" folder from within the relevant user profile, so that permissions from that profile will be applied.
