Update to Managed Desktop local Desktop directory

Currently when a Managed Desktop User saves something to the Desktop it is stored locally on the PC. If the PC or hard disk is broken, or needs replacing, there is potential for this data to be lost. To address this, we intend to redirect the local Desktop directory on the Managed Desktop to Users H:\Desktop. This change will be implemented on: Monday, 29th April, 2013 between 08.00 and 08:15

Thereafter, any files saved to your Desktop will be saved to your H:\ drive and automatically backed up.

Before this work takes place all Managed Desktop Users should file or move anything they want to keep on their Desktop to their H:\ drive Desktop folder.
