Have you checked to see if you can get extra pay for doing things that
were not in your original job description? Just curious ;)

There is. The files you are looking for are under:
c:\Documents and Settings\$profilename

Where $profilename is their Windows login id. However, I'm not sure how
to tell your login profile to use a folder on the network for that
instead of a local folder.
