Files Stored on This Computer

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

My Documents do not show under "Files Stored on My Computer" in My Computer.
The only time this shows when I have Administrative Privileges. I have
looked in the Registry
(HKLM\software\Microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\docfolderpaths) and
the Values are correct. The Set values in the command prompt are also
correct. Other users on the machine are also affected. I have Windows XP Pro
SP2. If any could shed some light on this situation would be great and much
appreciated.

Thanks.

    I don't see why you are not getting a My Documents in that case. Maybe there is something out in:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

    Mark,

    All the following values in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell
    Folders appear to be correct.

    I believe this might be a permission problem. When I change the limited or
    power user to an Administrator, the "My Documents" show up in the "Files
    Stored on This Computer". I have been comparing another system to this
    system's permissions and so far everything appears to be correct. I think it
    might be a Registry permission problem. Do you know of anyway of resetting
    NTFS permissions? Would an repair install correct NTFS permissions?

    The users can still create files in their documents folders and when I type
    %USERPROFILE%\My Documents in the Run command, their Document Folder Window
    will appear.

    I didn't even notice this problem until the user pointed this out to me, so
    I do not know how long this has been happening. I do not think it is a big
    problem since the user still has access to their folder. I also browed
    through the Group Policies to see if anything was causing this, I also look
    at these two key and found nothing.

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

    I am just curious what happened and once again thanks for helping me.

    I would guess the user has elected to 'make this folder private'

    Wesley,

    I do not have Tweak UI installed.

    This key DOES exist
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\My
    Computer\NameSpace\ DelegateFolders

    {59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee},. Would the following exported info
    be correct in this key,
    =======================
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\DelegateFolders\{59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}]
    @=""

    =======================

    In the
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    there is a NoSharedDocuments but it is a REG_BINARY with a value of 00 00 00
    00.

    In all users the Shared Documents does show under My Computer in the "Files
    Stored on This Computer". Their My Documents does not unless they are given
    Administrative Privileges.

    In the following key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DocFolderPaths

    All information is correct, for example, if the User Logon name is Joe then
    Value Name is Joe and the Value Dad is c:\documents and settings\Joe\My
    Documents.

    In the KB Article,
    Shared Documents Folders Are Missing From My Computer
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;319825

    The Desktop.ini is correct under [DeleteOnCopy].

    Derek.

    Derek,

    I can find 25 references to deleting this key to get rid of Shared
    Documents. I can't find what this key should contain.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
    MyComputer\NameSpace\DelegateFolders\{59031a47-3f72-44a7-89c5-5595fe6b30ee}]
    @=""
    -----

    TweakUI uses this key...

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer

    To add Files stored on this computer to My Computer.
    "NoSharedDocuments"=hex:00,00,00,00

    To remove Files stored on this computer from My Computer.
    "NoSharedDocuments"=hex:01,00,00,00
    -----

    Group Policy...
    Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\
    Remove Shared Documents from My Computer

    [[Removes the Shared Documents folders from My Computer.

    When a Windows client in is a workgroup, a Shared Documents icon appears in
    the Windows Explorer Web view under "Other Places" and also under "Files
    Stored on This Computer" in My Computer. Using this policy setting, you can
    choose not to have these items displayed.

    If you enable this setting, the Shared Documents folders is not displayed in
    the Web view or in My Computer.

    If you disable or do not configure this setting, the Shared Documents
    folders is displayed in Web view and also in My Computer when the client is
    part of a workgroup.]]

    The Not Configured setting removes NoSharedDocuments from...
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer

    The Enabled setting adds "NoSharedDocuments"=dword:00000001 to...
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer

    Beats me. ;-(

    Hope this helps. Let us know.
