    Hi- can someone tell me where the best place is to locate the folder that holds the user home folders for local network accounts? I set this up before and put the folder in the admin account's documents folder, now I am going to redo everything so I want to place it in the ideal location. Should it be a folder just in the Users folder, or somewhere else?

    If you're storing them on the main system drive, I'd probably make a new folder in the root of the drive called nethomes or netusers or something similar.

    Ideally, I'd have them stored on a separate drive, probably a RAID array to ensure availability / redundancy.

    Ok so I put the directory right in the root next to the original Users directory, and named it Netusers.
