Roaming Profiles and Floder Redirection Conflicts

Hello Everyone,

I was wondeing if I can get some insight on roaming profiles and folder redirection (Desktop, Application Data, Start Menu and My Documents) .

Can they be used at the same time? Should the by used at the same time?

I am doing some testing, reason I am requesting some help understanding this issue, a test user, I have their Desktop, Application Data, Start Menu, and My Documents, redirected, I also have the "User Group Policy loopback processing mode" enabled and set to "merge", plus roaming profiles is enabled. Whenever the user deletes a file from their desktop, logout and log back in again, the file shows up again.

If it is suggested to redirect the various options (excluding "My Documents" I understand that redirect) should they point to seperate share and not the "\\servername\profiles$\%username% directory?

Thanks for your help.

Also, forgot to comment, what about using the "home folder" option and mapping it to a network share? instead of using folder redirection?

thats a perfectly valid option as well, if your setup is looping then i would sort that out

homedrives got replaced and outdated in 2003 and they can create a lot of traffic - folder redirection is much better when set up correctly
