Manage User Files
Applies To: Windows MultiPoint Server 2011
Both standard users and administrative users at MultiPoint Server stations can save documents in Windows Explorer libraries and folders. A library is a collection of items, such as files and folders. Common libraries in Windows Explorer include Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos. When working with libraries, there are two options for storing documents:
Store documents privately so that they are accessible only to the user who stored them in a library or folder. Note that administrative users can access privately stored documents of standard users. However, standard users cannot access privately stored documents of administrative users. For more information about keeping content private, see the Keep Files Private topic.
Store documents publically so that they are accessible to all users on the MultiPoint Server system. For more information about sharing content with other users, see the Share Files topic.
The Documents library, by default, includes two folders: My Documents (which is private) and Public Documents (which is public). Other document libraries contain similar pairs of private and public folders. All administrative and standard users of a MultiPoint Server system should understand how the Windows Explorer location at which they put documents and other files can affect the privacy or public access of those files.
You can also share content with other users by using a USB storage device such as a USB flash drive or mass storage device (external hard disk). For more information about sharing content with storage devices, see the Save and Share Files on a USB Flash Drive topic.
