I have successfully set up roaming profiles on our server which appear to work correctly with a few test users I have set up. I am now trying to redirect their 'My Documents', 'Application Data', 'Desktop' and 'Start Menu' to another folder I created called 'Users'. I have created the folder on the server, shared it out and given 'everybody' full control. I then created a 'Group Policy' in User Configuration/Windows Settings/Folders Redirection. I have accepted the 'Basic Setting' and set the Target Location. I applied the policy which appears to be working bar one thing. I have noticed inside the Users folder, the username has a folder called 'Programs' redirected to just outside the User's folder, whereas the folders 'My Documents', Desktop' and 'Application Data' are stored inside each users appropriate folder. Its just bugging me as to what it could be. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
