I have been given the responsibility to maintain the PC's at our tiny local library and need to know how to rename a system folder. Here is the situation: There is one Administrator account named, "Bridge River Library" and one "Guest" account. The PC name is again, Bridge River Library. However, under Documents and Settings, in addition to the expected folders, e.g., Administrator, All Users, Default User, there is one with the past librarian's name. The goal is to rename this folder to simply "Librarian" so as to accommodate future changes to the staff. However, this folder cannot be renamed since it is a system folder.
I created a new account and then tried to delete and rename that folder but no go. I was able to delete it in Safe Mode after logging into the Administrator account, but after rebooting back into Windows and redoing all the settings, Desktop, etc., etc..... the folder with the person's name is still there.
So, can this folder be either deleted or renamed? Renaming seems to be the best option if possible which will circumvent having to reconfigure everything again.
