Question Nethood

i've been making backup in network folder and of course, the path to that is stored in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Nethood.
but for some reasons, this particular network folder makes its copy onto this local Nethood folder. if i understand it correctly, in Nethood, the path to the network folder (ususally in server) is stored, not the copy of the folder.
does anyone why it's making a copy there and how to stop it?

the machine in question is on win 2k3 server sp1 with sql2k.

I'm lil confused

You have this path --> C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Nethood <-- Which is the local computer

But you said you back it up to a network folder, so where is the network folder?

When you look at the profile path under the AD profile properties, what does it say in there?

ok let me see if I understand this correctly...


You make backups of users' local "Nethood" (hidden) Netshare folder on a network share right?

And you want to know why it's copying itself in the "Local" folder?

What that tells me is:

You now have a (local) path of:

C:\Documents and Settings\user.name\Nethood\Nethood

And you want to know why it is making a copy under the original "nethood" folder? Is this correct?

no. i'm not very good at explainig things so let me see if i can explain this right.

on server01, i'm running a backup job with veritas. and it's backed up to a folder in server02. (network folder).
on server01, c:\documents and settings\<domain administrator>\Nethood, i see a copy the folder in server02, not a path to it. therefore, it's taking up waaaay more space than it should. server01 is a sql server and i don't wanna lose too much diskspace on it.

does it make sense?

I see now, makes more sense, is that the backup to disk option?
