Folder redirection in 2k3

Last Modified: 2010-04-19
I'm currently running a 2k3 server.  We used the folder redirection to move all local my documents to a home directory folder on the server.   Exclusive rights where given to each user folder.  What i need to do is redirect the data back down to the local my documents.   My concern is that my backup has not been working properly,  I'm  thinking because of NTFS permisisions.  When you perform a folder redirect is there a way to copy the data back to the local profile instead of moving all data completely?

no I didn't
they recomend to use this future (i took all Win 2000 courses) but i didn't succed to come back
a solution seems to be to recreate the user profile (recreate user, or rename the profile, create a new one and  copy than desktop, favorites ....)
