Personal user folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would be grateful for the following:

    a user account has been created on the WHS; although the personal user folder was created automatically,

    it was then deleted because it was thought that there was no need for it.

    However, it is now needed. To my surprise it seems that a folder cannot be created in the main Users folder

    containing all the personal folders - both the user himself/herself and the administrator are denied

    access etc.

    I also tried to create it via the remote desktop, but failed.

    I would be most grateful for your suggestions.

     

    Thank you,

  • Windows Home Server is designed to be managed entirely through the console. That includes the creation/deletion of users and users' personal folders.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Thank you for your reply.

     

    As no other solution has been forthcoming, I will mark your reply as answered.

     

    I am, however, surprised that WHS is so inflexible.

     

    Thanks again.
