Why are folders containing users' files called Documents?

Why are folders containing users' files called Documents?
I have a folder (G:\UsersFiles) with all the user's home directories (for
example called G:\UsersFiles\edward) with their files, but Windows Vista and
Server 2008 are not displaying the folders as the usernames, but is virtually
renaming them to "Documents".

I don't want all these folders called "Documents", I want their real folder
names to be display instead.

How do I fix this?

I don't know how to make it the default, but you can right click on the
Document folder and select "Rename" in order to give it the name that you
want.

Set Explorer to show hidden files and to not hide protected OS files, then
you'll be able to see the desktop.ini files in each folder. Edit the
desktop.ini file & remove the line:

LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell 32.dll,-21770
