Folder redirection should be achieved through redirection policy which is straight forward and deals with initially copying the current user data and then copies it back when the user falls out.

Hello

@echo off
net use x: \\yourPCname\path_to_your_docs /USER:yourPCname\your_login_account password
net use /persistent:no


1. save these commands as a BAT file and place the file to every user's PC start up
2. make sure to make a correct share of your documents folder

Kosta I need to push this out with a group policy for more then 200 users. Would I have to get every computer name on the network?

example would I have to type this out for every user?  


@echo off
net use x: \\yourPCname\path_to_your_docs /USER:yourPCname\your_login_account password
net use /persistent:no

also you Greek? Ti Kaneis?

Unfortunately I am in the states. I speak Greek good. But it would be better to get the instructions in English.

Nice file!

So, tell me something.
You want to share a specific (just one) folder or drive, or many... like 200?
Each user to have access to other user "my documents"?

I am asking that because you told me "every computer name on the network"

each user has there own my documents folder. So say I have a word document saved under " my documents" folder. And I go to a different computer and log into with my credentials. I want to be able to go to my documents and access that word document or whatever file.

I dont know if I am making any sense or not. lol

Do you have outlook as the email client?

No, you made it clear enough

Two options exists for this deployment

1

Folder redirection as arnold said
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc781907%28v=ws.10%29.aspx 

2

Roaming profiles
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738596%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
Or you can achieve both

In every way Elia you have to consider many options so to accomplish your needs.

Study the requirements and reach to the deployment which cover your needs most
