39486: Acronis Files Connect: when "My Documents" or "Shared Documents" type folders are shared as volumes, why do they sometimes fail to initialize?

Question:

When "My Documents" or "Shared Documents" type folders are shared as volumes, why do they sometimes fail to initialize?

Answer:

Windows folders such as "My Documents" and "Shared Documents" are virtual folders that are mapped by Windows to subfolders in a user's profile directory. Attempting to share these resources will often result in the Acronis Files Connect volume failing to initialize. In addition, search index file creation will fail for these volumes. It is recommended that these special directories are not shared as volumes.
