Hi is there a way to save "My Documents" folder to be saved automatically into a networked drive? We are not in a domain environment. We are in a workgroup and use a Nas.

    Go into the Properties of the My Documents folder.  On the Target tab (the first one from the left) you will see the Target folder location field.  Enter the location of the folder on the NAS (e.g. \\NAS\share\mydocs, \\\share\mydocs, h:\mydocs).
