Folder Redirection Issue
Posted on 2004-10-04
Our network is running Win 2K as the DC, and we have set up basic folder redirection (for all users). The My Documents folders, App Data, Desktop, and Start Menu have all be redirected to a network share on the DC. This works swell for most users, but I have three or four users who are software developers and are complaining that Visual Studio .NET stores a lot of things in those folders. This redirection (they say) slows down compile times, and creates other issues (permissions with the .NET framework).
So, the real question is: how can I disable redirection for just those three or four users? I looked at "Advanced" redirection, but that only allows you to change the redirection location by user group - not turn it off for a particular group. Any other ideas? And secondly, if I do disable redirection for those users, how can I make sure they don't lose any data?
Thanks in advance.
