I am setting up a small network and i am stuck at rerouting the Links folder on Windows 7.

What i am trying to accomplish is to keep some particular directories stored on a server and all client computers will actually link to those folders, one of which is the Links folder.

I took a look at the registry and found most of the things in :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

But the Links folder isn't there so im wondering if it's possible to sync that folder over several PCs too without moving all the user directories to the server

Any hint is appreciated!

Will it be OK if you have to change it from GUI? The Links folder properties inside User folder gives the Location tab in which you can change it.

Edit : I found the registry entry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders on a string key named {BFB9D5E0-C6A9-404C-B2B2-AE6DB6AF4968}
