    Home folder question

    I was just looking on this site and stumbled on a post that said it was best to use 'd:/folder/username/share$/documents' as the home folder when setting users home folder in AD.

    At my schools I am using 'd:/Staff$/username'. with staff being the shared folder.

    What do others use? and does it make much difference from a user / security point of view?

    its for win7 (issues) i personally make their user area \\server\users$\group\username and then use folder redirection to put docs in docs pics in pics etc within their user area or if you look at \\server\users$\group\ all you will see is my documents for all folders

    as to using \\server\staff$\username their is as far as i can see no reason not to just increases the number of shares (and associated permissions) on your server
