I have two users with their respective login credentials that are using the same computer at different hours of the day and need to be able to use the same files as they both have the same responsabilities. These are roamin profiles but I'm not sure how to set up a share so that they both can always have the same documents.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1. Create a group for the users.
2. Add users to the group.
3. Create a folder and assign appropriate permissions for new group.
4. Map a drive or setup Home Directory, or look into redirecting the “My Documents Folder” for the users per group policy.

Done

*************
have them use the same logon script. If you map drives with the script, they will see the same drive mappings. In AD, you can map their home folder to the same location, just make sure they have the same rights to the share
