Windows 7: Document Folder Redirect

27 Nov 2009   #1

Document Folder Redirect

In the past (WinXP, WinVista) we always redirected the users 'Documents' folder to their personal network share. It allowed for easy backup of their files.

With Windows 7 they've changed that now. Manually it won't let me redirect their Documents folder until I index the network share. So I go out there, and Sync the folder it's supposed to go to. Then I can add it to the Documents "library".

The Documents "library" isn't a bad idea the more I play with it. Having the ability to add multiple network shares into the Documents folder is a good idea.

OK… so with all that said, I’d like to just do the basic “Documents Redirect” like I did in WinXP & Vista. And I want to do this as part of their login. How? This is not the easy solution it once was. Suggestions?
