Hello,

A Windows 2008 server in our company has a shared drive called USERS.  There are user sub-folders inside.

From a Windows 7 workstation, I use something such as \\server1\users\johns in the loginscript.  However, when I ask our Apple admin to do the similar thing in his apple script, he can only create a users shortcut on the desktop.  When this shortcut is clicked, a window with all subfolders are being shown.  

Please advise if anyone has some idea of how to fix this.  

Many thanks.
