I'm trying to fix my profile on Windows 7. Currently
- %USERPROFILE% points to
- My Documents is also at
\\profileServer\profiles$\myUsernamehas TWO "My Documents" folders
- Neither of these folders contain what's in
- Navigating to
%USERPROFILE%in Windows Explorer displays two copies of everything, one local and one copy from the server.
- Programs use sort of a toss up between
C:\Users\myUsername\My Documentsor one of the two My Documents on profileServer.
According to our sysadmins, My Documents is supposed to point to the profile server, but other folders should be local.
How can I fix this so I have ONE copy of everything, with My Documents pointing to
\\profileServer\profiles$\myUsername\Documents and everything else local?
To be honest, I don't understand why this is so difficult and confusing. For example, why does Windows allow displaying two folders with the same name in the same directory?
And why does inputting
%USERPROFILE% into Windows Explorer produce two different results? They should be identical.
My directory on the profileServer
My local user directory,
%USERPROFILE% in Windows Explorer
%USERPROFILE% is set to a local directory
