Hidden "USER" Share Folders -- Windows 2012 R2

I reconnected my iSCSI SAN to my new
server and ALL the shares I setup work.

How can I get the below
OLD logic to work on my NEW
server so DOMAIN users don't have
to change desktop shortcuts/etc ?
Old 2003 Server
  ** \\serverName\users$\userName

New 2012 Server
  ** \\serverName\driveLetter$\users\userName

setup a share for the users directory as $users then it will with same path, if the server has the same name then you should have no user impact

Are you using ADMINISTRATIVE shares for people - driveletter$?  Thats REALLY bad - your users are ALL Domain Admins?  REALLY REALLY BAD!
don't use driveletter$ but use instead user$ as the share name, that will hide from any user but will have access via full unc path
