Accessing your files using Windows Networking

We have redirected Document folder to your home directory H:\ drive as “WindowsDocuments”, as you can see in the screen shot, WindowsDocuments, My Music, My Pictures and My Videos folders have different colours. Vista Users_clip_image002.jpg

These folders are redirected to your H:\WindowsDocuments folder. You should be saving your critical data on the WindowsDocuments folder on your H:\ drive. The folder redirection might not take effect on your first logon, but it will move the necessary data to the new location once started.

Windows XP and Windows Vista do not share the same profile. If a vista user logs on to Windows XP or terminal services, they will have a separate profile, but My Documents folder is redirected to the same location on the home directory so you can access and save your data easily.
