C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.XXXXXXX
Posted on 2003-12-10
i have clean-installed Win2000Pro many times and i've never seen this before...
i just got a Toshiba Portege 2000 and did a clean install of Win2000Pro as usual; i had to go to toshiba site to get drivers etc but nothing unusual.
In the C:\Documents and Settings\ folder there are expected folders:
2. All Users
3. Default User
What is UNUSUAL (to me at least) is that there are additional folders:
2. All Users.WINNT
3. Default User.WINNT
I am logged on as "Administrator". There are no users except for "Guest".
"My Documents" links to "Adminstrator.PORTEGE\My Documents". This is causing problems for me because there are many scripts that I share among other computers which I point to the "Administrator" folder. So when I move it to the Portege and use those scripts, it doesn't work because the expected files are not in the "Adminstrator" folder, but in the "Administrator.PORTEGE" folder.
Preferably, I would like to eliminate those "unusual" unexpected folders and make sure that My Documents shortcut points to "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents".
