Hi

I am running Windows 2000 Server Standard SP4. Users are running
Windows XP SP3. Is it possible to force users to save their files to
the shares on the network and to stop them from saving files to their
local hard drives.
Thanks

Force? That's not really a great word here. Instead, how about "gently guide
& make sure they'd have to go out of their way to do otherwise" ? Set up
group policy to redirect My Documents, Desktop, and perhaps even Application
Data to the server.
