That is both interesting and worrying. I've just started with Vista and did not realise some dircetories could be unixlike hard and soft links!
The new Documents and settings folder is C:\user\username\Documents.
If you had left the tools/views uncustomised, the Documents and settings folder would have been invisible to you, as it is akin to a system folder.
It is known as a junction folder and is a feature of NTFS, not just Vista. It would be very unwise to gain permission, everything in it is duplicated under Users/yourname.

Is there an endless loop problem with ewido online scanning when it encounters a PC with a non-English Vista installation?
Before running ewido micro should I follow this wildersecurity.org post?
"To run with Vista , you may try to go to this file's properties , choose to run the exe file in Compatibility mode for Windows XP SP2"
If I do not, then the ewido micro scanning engine starts descending
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
and then repeatedly descends "\Application Data" in a mix
of english and the installed language.
For example for a PC with an Italian VISTA installation, one sees ewido
descend as far as this extreme path, but never end:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Application Data\Dati applicazioni\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Dati applicazioni\... until the leaf filename
Is this recursion related to the Vista feature in this post?
