guest account
« on: June 12, 2012, 03:26:13 PM »

When I enter my documents from a thumb drive into my admin account, then go to guest they are there also.
When I delete the guest documents they are also removed from my admin account. The lap top is not like that. What I do in the admin account does not go to the guest account in the lap. I need to make the two accounts not related without disabling the guest acccount..
I am sorry if this overlpas with another message but after the duplicate dpwnloads by Windows, I used Acronis so nothing has been downloaded.

Unfortunately as I look at Windows it wants to download 32 updates which would be back where i started from. Aren't there just 16 of them? Why am I prompted to install 32 now?

I never use the guest account.

But each account you make gets its own profile directory. They also all share the "All Users" directories. SO anything you remove from there will effect all the profiles. But anything stored int he profile itself shouldnt be shared with the others. :wink:

The path is not correct and I hope I am being advised as to how to change it.

The functional machine has the path as lap \users\us \documents\critical notes
and the non functional one is desk\users\public\documents\critical notes

Would changing the path fix this issue?

desk\users\public\documents\critical notes

You see the word "public" this is the same as all users. So it shows up for all profiles.

Instead move it to the documents folder of the profile your currently logged in as :wink:

If I understand you, altho the pc paths differ, the path is correct?

I am sorry but I do not understand this:    Instead move it to the documents folder of the profile your currently logged in as

I dont fully understand how you have things set up.

I take it your coping the full users folder onto the thumb drive and then copying over to the other system.

Problem is you have the documents in the public folder, so when you copy it over it is going tot he public folder.

Instead just grab the critical notes folder off the thumb drive, then open your "My Documents" and paste them in there :wink:

I have done that.
I went to libraries, rt clicked documents and clicked properties. That allowed me to change "public" to "us" which is our acct.
However, the folder still sems to be joined to each account.

Does the word permissions have to do with this?

My intention and first question is to have the desktop behave as it did before and like the laptop =create a folder in just the admin. However, pasting or thumb drive, it still gets into the guestacct and if deleted there, gets dleted in the admin acct.

Changing the properties of the location of my documents will work. But you have to still move the files out of the public folder. Changing the properties doesnt move the files :wink:

Changing the path corrected the problem. I changed it from "public" to "us" by changing the path at libraries > clicking>properties and unchecking 'public' and checking "us" our acct name.

I wish to thank you very much for your kind attention to my problem.
