I have a Windows 7 client connected to a domain running on a Windows 2003 server. The user's Word files are stored in the "Documents" folder under "Libraries". Which I click on the "Documents" folder, the two location I see are "\server\home\username" and "C:\Users\Public\Documents" (with the former marked as the Default save location).
I'm trying to find out where the Word files are actually stored so that I can use Robocopy to copy it to the server. To find the location, I did this:
- I logged in as the user on a different machine (Win XP) - but could not see the Word files in the "My Documents" folder.
- I unplugged the network cable and logged into the original Windows 7 computer - and was able to see and access the Word files in "Documents" folder.
The two steps above would indicate that the Word files is on the laptop somewhere.
I have tried these things:
- I look in "C:\Users\Public\Documents" folder, but I don't see any Word files.
- I look in "C:\Users\domain.username" folder, but I don't see the "Documents" folder. I see a "My Documents" shortcut and when I click on it, I get a "Location is not available" error message.
- I look in "C:\Users\username" folder and I get a message saying that the user doesn't have permission to view the data. So I enter my credentials and am able to log in. I see:
- a "My Documents" folder but it doesn't have the Word files for which I am looking
- a "My Documents" shortcut but when I double-click it, I get a "Location is not available" error message
Here are my questions:
- Where are the Word files?
- How may I access it when I'm logged in as the user"?
