    v1 v2  
    5757Another new feature that is available but disabled by default is the ability to keep your desktop, my documents folder, and/or start menu synchronized on any system you log into. Also they will be backed up in the same location as your home folder, and whatever changes you make will be kept track of and maintained on any domain computer you log onto. (This isn’t all that different from just keeping files maintained inside your home folder share but perhaps just slightly more automated. If you are interested in this feature contact the domain system administrator to have it enabled.)
