Converting from Roaming Profile to Folder Redirect
Posted on 2006-05-31
I had some synchronzing issues recently, so I started using folder redirection. My problem now is that I don't want to mess up anyone's profile. If they're currently using a roaming profile and their data is stored in one folder , in the folder in their profile path, what happens to all that data if I create a group policy to have their desktop; startup menu; my documents and application data to go into redirected folders?
Is there a procedure that should be followed when doing this? The only safe way I can think of is logging into each and every account, backing up data and then converting. There has to be a better way.
