Possible to relocate Vista multiple account folders to NAS?


New Member
I'm wondering if the option to relocate account folders such as Documents, Pictures etc. in Vista is possible with the setup I have in mind.

I have multiple PCs on my network and want to relocate the corresponding account folders from each PC - i.e. MyAccount from PC1 & MyAccount from PC2 - to the same locations on a NAS, thus whatever changes are made on one will be reflected on another - giving a kind of Active Directory 'impression'.

Example: Go to Documents and select Properties > Location > Move, and relocate directory to NAS. Do the same for corresponding account/directory on another PC and relocate to same location on NAS.

I want to know whether relocating directories from two separate directories/accounts/PCs to the same location on the NAS will cause problems, or whether files will simply be accessable from either account/PC.

If it's possible, will there be any permission issues (Windows and/or NAS) and could such relocation still be done (even if some tweaking is necessary) for directories such as Favorites, Contacts, Links etc?
