In our users networked home drives is a “desktop” folder. i.e. H:\desktop

Also in our users home drives is a \profile\desktop folder, i.e. H:\profile\desktop

If I create a file in H:\profile\desktop it then appears on my computers desktop.

If I create a file in H:\desktop it appears if I logon to a citrix xenapp server.

What are these both these scenarios folders referred to as in tech speak?

How does it work? I.e. how does logging on to a citrix server show the contents of H:\desktop ?
