change the location om "My Documents" folder Windows 7 on 2003 domain
Posted on 2011-02-26
We are running server 2003 and connect 8 clients to the domain.
We have upgraded client PC's from XP Pro to new PC's loaded with Windows 7 Pro.
We have a problem with only one particular username who we don't seem to be able to alter the location of the "My Documents" which changed OK for the others, being servername\redirected folders\username\documents.
Standard way we use to change it is, logon username to domain using their own PC, click on Start - choose "documents" from pop up menu - new window pops up - Right Click on "Documents" in left hand navigation panel - choose "Expand" - Right Click " My Documents" - left click "properties" - choose "location" tab,
Current location / path of the "My Documents" is shown in an editable window and you can simply type in the new target location, there are also 3 button boxes directly underneath the location / path window for "Restore Default", "Move", and "Find Target".
On the problem username, everything is the same until we get to the "location" tab. - the location / path is still shown but is not editable and none of the three button boxes are there !
We have checked the permissions on the 2003 server for this user and they seem to be identical to the other seven users ?
We have also tried the username on other PC's to rule out any settings on the actuall PC.
Any ideas why the option to change the location of "My Documents" for this user is not available ?
All suggestion great appreciated, thanks.
