    Home Folders

    Hi

    We have just installed Windows 7 and got a little glitch.

    We have a folder called secondary that all the secondary pupils folders home drives are saved. Under XP this worked fine, you could browse inside there to a users folder.

    Now, when people have logged onto a Windows 7 machine, it just says My Documents. So inside the secondary folder, there are several My Documents folders, which each correspond to a different user. It works ok, but its hard to find some work the pupil has done.

    Is there any way round it.
