Hi Experts,
Usually I need to place on the desktop one or two shortcuts pointing to certain folders in another machine in the network.

The thing is for some reason after a few days they change their target to the local desktop.

Why this happens and how can I control it ?
Best regards!

Mmmm... this seems totally a Poltergeist.

Maybe the shortcuts have been checked when the remote machine were not available and then they turned on to local shortcuts. It's the only one thing I can guess now.

Well, there's another possibility... are you totally sure that nobody changed them manually?
