When the installation or upgrade is complete, note the following regarding additional tasks and

Shared Folders Created by the Installer

The installer automatically sets permissions to the shared folders. Administrators group members

share the \DES\DES folder, which is located in the Kofax Document Exchange Server folder you

specified and is used for storing user inboxes. You can change this folder: see the Kofax Document

Exchange Server Administrator’s Guide for instructions.

Do not share any other folders in the folder where Kofax Document Exchange Server is installed.

Users other than administrators do not need to have rights to the folders in order to use Kofax

Document Exchange Server.
