    That would be in group policy on the domain ( folder re direction ) and re direct there "My Docs" and what ever else to there home areas etc

    does this work with offline files? I thought it would be similar to just mapping a drive but with a prettier logo?

    I may be getting the wrong end of the stick here but here goes:

    Our Students/Staff have their home folders mapped as U: on the network so as admin map a U:\ to a network share and create a shortcut to U:\ [not the network share. Copy the shortcut to the shared student desktop.

    Job done [I hope]

    Their home drive is H: so if i map a H: to their area it'll pick up their home folder?
