Shared Files Folder

By rcurtis ·
Each of my users has My Documents folder mapped to \\server\share\%username% ..
These folders are only available to %username%, how can I create a folder in My documents that has files available to everyone.
eg..
"\\server\share\%username%\shared files" would be available to everyone but
"\\server\share\$username$ is restricted to that user.


I am trying to get users to save files only to My Docs, and don't want to have to use a mapped drive.

Any Ideas

hi,
You have to share that sub-folder.
any other option would not be a complete restriction of the original share.

No, I think you might have missed what I was getting at Yuval.
If I create a subfolder and share it out, then that subfolder only resides in one persons My Docs.
What I am looking for is to have a "shortcut" in each users my docs folder that point to a single folder of shared files.... each user will use the same "shared files" folder to store shared files....

Yes I could go to a network share but i want it to be available in my docs,

If you want to use the same shared folder for all users, you can just create a shortcut that points to that folder, and copy that shortcut to each users My Docs.
