I would like to store the PC Home folder on a server using Samba. I found some information, how can I move the Home folder. I would like to move this folder to a Samba share, on Linux there is the fstab to mount share folder. How can I mount under win 7 this shared folder as a partition, during the system start, using username and passwords?

My question is not related to the samba configuration. – Kicsi Mano Oct 8 '12 at 10:53
mklink /d C:\userhomes \\server\share

That doesn't actually mount the share but creates a symbolic link to it. Every user permitted to access the share can transparently access it through the symlink. You grant access by setting appropriate permissions on the Samba share.

How can I start the network, and how can I mount the samba before login? How can I grant access to this drive for everybody? – Kicsi Mano Oct 8 '12 at 12:36
