Desktop Client Filr Folder Location

When another user logs in on a Win XP machine with Filr desktop client and runs Filr for the first time, the default location for the Filr folder is "c:\documents and settings\temp\desktop\". Is this how it's supposed to be? Most of my users will never know that they should use their own document directory or how to get there on the initial setup. Their Windows user name is the same as their eDirectory name. Can I set the desktop client to automatically use their specific documents directory?

Going to check Win 7 in a minute.

Re: Desktop Client Filr Folder Location

It is not 'supposed' to do that, but I do not have XP here anymore. Instead I tested with Windows 7 and this works fine for me. The path suggested for a user1 and user2 are correctly set to c:\users\userX
Could it be your user has gotten a temp profile instead of a fully user profile?

That's what I'm thinking as well. An easy way to check this is to have
a user run a command prompt and type the following command:

echo %userprofile%

That should return the path to their profile which would indicate if
it's a temp profile or their regular one.

Re: Desktop Client Filr Folder Location

Looks like it was a Windows profile glitch. Deleted profiles, a couple of reboots and a weekend fixed the problem machine.

Thanks for the help.
