Doc & Settings!!

Windows 7

The “My Documents and Settings” is not a folder used by Windows Vista.

It is what is called a junction point. If you note, the folder

itself is shaded out with a shortcut overlay. If you have "Hide

protected operating system files" unchecked, then you will see these

junction points. It is intended that users have no access to these

junction points.


In Windows Vista, the “My Documents and Settings“, has been replaced

by "Users". Each user account will then have Documents, Pictures,

videos etc. Note the "My" designation is no longer used. These

junction points exist to provide backwards compatibility for older

programs that are unaware of the new folder structure in Windows

Vista. A program that is hardcoded to install files in the old

Documents and Settings will be silently redirected to the new

Hello Mr Bean. I do not know why you got that. I have no problem opening the zip file. I created it with the PSR feature in W7. It's just explaining the W7 & vista no longer use documents & settings. It has been replaced with (Users) :-|
