6.6 Managing User Data
In addition to the My Documents folder, Windows Server 2003 allows you to create home folders for users
to store their personal documents. You can locate all users' home folders on a client computer, or in a shared
folder on a file server, or in a central location on a network server.
Storing all home folders on a file server provides the following advantages:
• Users can gain access to their home folders from any client computer on the network.
• The backing up and administration of user documents is centralized.
• The home folders are accessible from a client computer running any Microsoft operating.
