Users network folder name changed by Vista

Posted: 01-16-2009, 11:03 PM
A user with vista pro, was setting up hos documents and he hit some sequence
of commands that caused his
User share on the server to be renamed documents. All attempts to rename
it fail. From the DOS command it shows as it should Userlastfirstname ,
but from the explorer window it appears as Documents. I think he somehow
set his vista to place his local document folders to that location. Is
there a way to reset ?

You can TRY:

Right click on the 'documents' folder.

Select properties.

Hopefully there is a 'location' tab
if so select it, it is here that the location of 'documents' can be changed.
The 'Restore Default' may fix things. Otherwise you could TRY Moving it to
c:\Users\name\Documents (assuming a standard configuration) or where you
think it is supposed to be.

Luck,
Michael
