Hello, can any provide the best way to put a common folder in the document's library?

I have a a few users and they want to share common folders and we have a shared drive (i: drive).  Rather than their default save drive being their own personal drive I would like it to go to the shared drive.

What is the best way to accomplish this?

Answer below is from this link  http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-files/windows-7-documents-library-redirection-to-network/b720c850-b1ae-450c-8baf-e7be6a787a1f

Click the 'Start Orb', and click on your user profile/user name in the upper right hand column.  This will open the root of your user folder (located at %systemdrive%\Users\%Username%\).  Right click on 'My Documents' and choose properties.  You will find a tab called 'Location', Click the 'Move' button and you will will select your remote source.

After you have selected the remote folder you will be asked if you would like to move your existing documents into this new location.  The answer is completely up to you.

Found that I had to turn on Windows Search features on the server.  Once I did this I could include the shared folder within the library otherwise it would not because the folder was not indexed.
