The Homedrive is a very crucial part of building a dynamic Workspace with RES Workspace Manager. Basically the Homedrive contains of two areas: User Data (often linked to and known as My Documents) and the RES Workspace Manager Home Drive (contains User related settings like Workspace Preferences and User Settings).

In our second IT Insight of the year, we focus on how to introduce context-aware computing into your IT environment. Today, it’s fairly common for people to work from different locations, as well as multiple platforms, all in the same work day. This is why context-aware computing is increasingly important. Wherever they are, users need access to their settings, applications and data, but IT still needs to control how and in what situations they should be able to access it.
