    I have a folder (G:\UsersFiles) with all the user's home directories (for
    example called G:\UsersFiles\edward) with their files, but Windows Vista and
    Server 2008 are not displaying the folders as the usernames, but is virtually
    renaming them to "Documents".

    I don't want all these folders called "Documents", I want their real folder
    names to be display instead.

    How do I fix this?

  3. Set Explorer to show hidden files and to not hide protected OS files, then
    you'll be able to see the desktop.ini files in each folder. Edit the
    desktop.ini file & remove the line:
