    Staff Share Documents HELP

    Just wondering why this is happening...

    I've migrated all the staff shares from our old Win2k3 Server to Server 2008. The staff are using Vista Clients.

    As they logon, the folder name on the server is changing to "Documents". The only way to see who's home folder it is, is by looking at the NTFS permissions. The UNC path is still accessible using \\server\users\staff\USERNAME despite it appearing as DOCUMENTS.

    Is there a simple tick box I've not hit yet?

    delete the file desktop.ini in each folder - Explorer shows the folder name from there.

    If you really want to make it "nice", you could put the user's name in to the file.

    Aah I see. What a pain in the backside!

    Ok so everytime I've got to do that to resolve that. Surely there's a better way to manage these desktop.ini files. Neways, atleast I know why it's doing that now.

    Thanks srochford!!
