Why does computer name change create new Users\<name> folders?
When I first received my new pc w/ Vista Home Premium I created a std account
Daniel. I noticed that from the Admin account I could navigate to the Users
folder and see a folder "Daniel".

Later I changed the name of my pc to "E1505_D" and I then see another folder
Users\Daniel.E1505_D. So I now have Users\Daniel and Users\Daniel.E1505_D.

Could someone provide a pointer to documentation on this feature of Vista?

Daniel

Why not post this in the Vista general group? It's not a setup question.

Re: Why does computer? Not a setup question. Post in general.
I mistakenly thought this was the appropriate group since setting/changing
the name of the computer is part of "setup" but I guess it is really more of
a "maintainence" issue too.

I'm new to using these newgroups and appreciate the advise on where to post
issues.
