I'm running a windows 2003 server network, where every user has an S drive for personal files and a P drive for departmental files. I want them to have a quick shortcut to one or other of these as we used to by setting the properties of My Documents to s: or P: in the past. What's the best way to achieve this in Windows 7?
I'm confused by the way Windows 7 treats network drives- Start - Documents shows teo locations, one of which is a public drive mapped to C:\etc, but there's no option to remap this. If I delete it and add the P drive it says it can't link to this unless the P drive is indexed - but what does indexing mean and can I index a server 2003 folder? The only other option is to make the folder available offline which means all the files will be copied onto the PC, laptop fashion -this sounds like a disaster for a network manager if each PC is busy downloading a fresh copy of all the public files every time a user logs on. Maybe I've misinterpreted this -I hope so!
