Altering Students Folders
First off I apologise if this in the wrong section.
As some of you know I've inherited the school network a little over a year ago. I've not done any work on the servers as such, but concentrated on bringing the infrastructure upto spec as it's been left for 6 years. I'm now in a position to start sorting out the servers to meet mine and more over the schools needs.
That's where the problems start. My first task I want to do is sort out the students home directories. At the moment the students have to locate their own directory via My Computer - P Drive - Users and then find their own folder. I don't find this acceptable now.
So, my question is what is the easiest method of organising the students into their own folders while retaining their permissions. E.G. I would like to use the current naming method so that student A (e.g. JDoe10) who finish their GCSE's in 2010 will be in a folder called Students2010. I then want that student to be able to access their own directory through the My Documents folder on the desktop (which if I remeber correctly is done through GPO, but I would like some help on that as well).
Ultimately I want to hide the students folders from anyone browsing for it via the old method if possible as well, but that is not too urgent.
Hope someone can help,
