Depends if you are using folder redirection or not. If not it will be on the local machine under your user profile:

C:\users\%username%\Documents

If it's redirected I believe it should be on the SBS under:

C:\users\folderredirections\%username% (or wherever the share has been re-located to through the SBS console)

If they are in the Shared folders, I assume that means that they are not private and anyone can view and maybe edit the files? I want to move the users files to a different partition. But want them in the correct folder. I need them on the server so they can be backed up. Sounds like they should be in the redirected folder to remain private.

As it's SBS this is really easy to do:

1. Open the SBS Console
2. Go to the Backup and Server Storage - server storage tab
3. In the Task pane there's an option to move the Redirected Documents data
4. Follow the wizard to move the data to another drive/partition/location

By default I believe the permissions on redirected folders will only allow System, Domain admins, and the user account itself to access the relevant user's folder/files. (i.e user A can access UserA redirected fodler, but not UserB redirected folder).

OK, Thank you.
We had a company migrate all of our DATA From the old SBS 2003 Server. They made a mess of the Users documents.  Now I am trying to straighten it out so I can move these files. But want them in the correct place. Right now they are all a Shared folder. and in a folder named DATA. Like I said. A mess. Thank you for your time
