Hey! Where’s the “My Documents” Folder?
|Folder Name||Redirected Location|
|Music (or My Music)||R:\My Music|
|Pictures (or My Pictures)||R:\My Pictures|
|Videos (or My Videos)||R:\My Videos|
The locations we redirected these folders to are the most common locations we’ve encountered for these file types. These locations may not exist on everyone’s R drive. If this is the case, when you look into the User Folder on the Desktop you will see white file icons with no information. These can be corrected by simply creating the corresponding folder on the R: drive for the missing folder icons. The most common folders which may need to be created are the R:\My Music and R:\My Videos followed by the R:\My Pictures. You can check your R: drive and see if you have these folders. If your pictures, music and videos exist in other folders you should consider moving your data to these folders or renaming your folders to match the name above.
This folder redirection is necessary to help you keep your data on the server and allow you to access your data with a minimum of effort to search for your information. This will also help us in future deployments in setting up your computers.
If you are in an office that does not have a file server or work outside the extension office, your data folders will be on the C: drive in the following locations:
|Music (or My Music)||C:\users\username\Music|
|Pictures (or My Pictures)||C:\users\username\Pictures|
|Videos (or My Videos)||C:\users\username\Videos|
