    My Documents changed name after re-direction

    I have re-directed My Documents to the user home drive aswell as all the other folders connected to My Documents. All is working well.

    The problem i am having is that the name of My Documents in the users Personal Folder is now the same as the home drive instead of My Documents.

    Is there any way to correct for this?

    Thank You

    I don't quite follow, but here's an example I hope it'll help:

    I share User Documents as:

    \\Servername\username$

    And Favourites as:

    \\Servername\%Username%$\Favorites

    Contacts:

    \\Servername\%Username%$\Contacts etc...

    Pictures don't appear to be working on Edugeek this morning, or is it just me?

    it works if you open it in new tab, but not on the page itself. i though it was our smoothwall to be honest.

    You're right, a new tab shows pictures.

    So what are you specifying as the home path in Active Directory compared to my above example?

    Im using %homedrive% as the re-direction, it works, but the name gets changed, im using the same thing for all the others but appending the folder names

    eg

    %homedrive%\Downloads
    %homedrive%\Favorites etc

    The rest don't change names. If i cant change it its ok but id like it to have the correct name.
