Since server 2008 and windows 7 renames a users folder on the server to My Documents, I tried renaming one of the folders to the user name. It renamed all the My Documents to the name I was trying to rename it to. I quickly did an Undo and they appeared to go back, however when I went into the folder it was a different name. (see attached document) Not only that, the name in the folder (there were over 100 folders changed) was a different name then I tried to rename it to in the first place. I was originally trying for the username ADunn, not ZRaefski. I was doing this through the Network location, not signed onto the server itself.
My question is: How can I safely rename all the files to correspond with the correct students. I did a test of a few students in a test folder, (while signed onto the server this time) and it appeared to work, however I would really like an expert opinions. If the files are not renamed, the student will have lost their documents. I tested signing on as one of the students and it did not find the original My documents folder.
