Hi all,

I am testing Windows7 at one of my clients offices, for my client.

We are using beta7048.

I am wondering how to change the path of the documents folder?

I right click, select properties, and doesn't look like to old properties from previous versions.

It is also complaining that the shared drives needs to indexed???????

The three main file servers are all linux servers and the XP machines in the domain have no issues with redirecting the documents folder to the shared drives.


Thanks

Heeter

It doesn't get much easier...
right click
'properties'
'Include a folder'
Choose the folder you want
'Set save location'
'Remove' the old location

Thank you very much for the link.

And, I do not suck at posting questions.

I try my best to post all the possible information about my situation so that anyone who can help me, will know right off the bat with what I am having trouble with.

No one else seems to take issue with the way I post here. In fact, anyone and everyone who helps me here usually does so in the first or second response, to my initial thread starter.

is this thread an appropriate place for a "learn to read" statement? :p

Or should it be "read post in entirity before posting assinine comments"?

Not really, lord. I just don't like the "I think I know more than you attitude" that comes from some people ...

I read the whole post, and comprehended it. It's just not written very well.

read it. It comes across as "It looks different and I couldn't figure it out"

The question (Which I answered in my first post) was:

Then, almost as an aside and appearing fairly unrelated to the question is:

All told, I wasn't in the mindset of translating client's questions into what they really want... I deal with that all day every day, and I (somewhat stupidly) expected more from someone who has several thousand posts on a technical forum.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
