Windows 2000 Server

  Sgt. Pepper 19:22 31 Oct 2003

I have recently changed one of my old PC into a server type of system and am currently using Windows 2000 server, I was wondering if anyone had any information on server system and subdirectories such as WINNT folder, Program Files, documents and setting folder. Im not to sure what these folders are used for.

I would be thankful if anyone can help.

Sorry I havent made that to clear, Im basicaly trying to find out information on certain files and folders such as WINNT, documents and setting and program files which can be found when i double click on my C: drive.

I am trying to find out what these files and folders are used for ?

Are you running a network with 2K server? are you using active directory?

I havent set my network up as yet. Im basically trying to gather as much information on the software as I can before using it properly.

Well WINIT (Windows tech) controls all the NT uses of 2K server. An example would be C:\winnt\csc, which is Client Side Cache, this folder holds the files from other computers on your future
network so that they can be worked on when you are not connected to the
network. You can view the files and set the properties in Control
panel/Folder options on the Offline files tab.

You will find lots of extras in Prog/Amin things called snap-ons, which add control to your soon to be network.

Documents and setting are NT'S equivalent of My documents.

Spend a large part of my life (as others here do) infront of a 2K server screen so post any questions regarding here.

Re: the above The offline cache is located at %SystemRoot%\csc but it can be moved using Cachemov.exe. Run a search for it...2K server is MASSIVE and with the add ons and service packs you have some work to do. ;o)
