    Thx for the replies everyone

    seems to be split between
    Full read-only access with AUP stating no personal information to be stored
    A communal area where work to be marked can be saved (this is what we have always used)

    could do with a poll to vote on the 2 options being used - anyone know how to set one up on here ?

    How do people who use win 7 achieve this?
    The reason I ask is because user areas get renamed to documents so staff can't see who's area is who's.

    When we moved to Windows 7 we also reorganised our user areas to match the Vista/7 pattern, so Pictures, Documents, Videos, etc., are not just all subfolders of My Documents, but separate folders as they would be on a local profile in Vista/7. The user shares that have our redirected folders are arranged like this:

    Code:
    \\server\userdata\username\
                              \Desktop
                              \Documents
                              \Downloads
                              \Favorites
                              \Music
                              \Pictures
                              \Videos
    So while each redirected Documents folder does get appear as "My Documents", that doesn't matter because the \username folder appears with the user name as normal.

    If you do this, you should probably ensure that pupils cannot modify anyone else's files.

    A third option which doesn't seem to have been mentioned yet is that pupils email work to their teachers.

    Similar to AngryTechnician, except for us all the Videos, Music, Pictures, etc. folders are sub-folders of \\server\users$\students\year_of_entry\username\do cuments The slight drawback of this is that anyone whose area was imported from our old network has two My Pictures folders, but it did ease the data transfer.

    Ouch. Whose decision is it which staff are trustworthy, and who explains to the others why they don't have the access?

    Maybe trust was a bad choice of word?


    I know there are some teachers here I wouldn't trust. [Totally making the same mistake...] Mainly because the chances of them accidentally deleting everything are pretty high.

    We use the equivalent to unix/linux links but within windows ntfs. Each student has a directory within their own home directory. Links are created in a folder elsewhere where staff have access. Overall staff gain access to this special folder but nowhere else within the students home directory. We do have quite a complicated setup as the staff accessible area is broken up first into year group, SIMS subject code, class code and finally the students name. Each students name is not a shortcut. I create the data from a SIMS report then feed the file into a Java progam I've written which creates a batch file. Run the batch and hey presto all sorted.

    Does require the students records to have their usernames as a user defined field in SIMS.
