One of the Windows XP users I support (it's a Windows domain environment) has a huge, nightmarish collection of folders, files and shortcuts to folders and files on their desktop. This came about due to a basic misunderstanding of the difference between a shortcut and the object to which it points (a file or folder). I think this person now understands the difference, but the mess needs to be cleaned up: the desktop folder is local and by default, local folders are not backed up.
For now, I've added a special process that backs up the user's desktop folder to the server so that the main nightly backup will back it up, but that's a temporary band-aid.
So my question is: given this spagetti-like mess of desktop folders containing shortcuts to server folders which contain files, more folders and shortcuts to who knows what, are there any tools out there that could help to unravel and re-organize it?
