Getting there

The options are:


Virtual directory

The directory name that is visible to client users. For example:


Note: You can enter a forward slash (/) to configure a chrooted environment. Only the specified physical directory is available to users, and the user login directory is automatically set equal to that directory. If you set Physical directory to "$drive" (not case-sensitive) rather than specifying a directory, this option provides access to multiple local drives. For details, see Virtual Root Directories.


Physical directory

The actual directory path on the Reflection for Secure IT server or in the Windows domain. For example:


Note: Use UNC paths to specify directories on remote servers; mapped drives are not supported.

You can specify any physical directory, or use one of the following pattern strings to specify user-specific directories. For details see Pattern Strings in Directory Paths.




The user's User profile folder.




The user's Home folder.




The user's login name.




The user's domain name and login in the format domain.username.



Note: Do not use %u or %U to point to a location within a user's Windows profile folder. Neither of these options works correctly for this purpose. Use these options to create your own user-specific locations in some other location, for example on a shared network file server. For details, see Pattern Strings in Directory Paths.
