My Documents Folder Redirection not Folder Synchronization
Posted on 2006-11-07
Windows Server 2003 SP1; I have My Documents folder redirection setup via GPO. Files are redirected to a users’ share on the network. Everything has been working great. However, I have noticed that when a user logs on, existing My Documents’ contents are redirected to these users’ folders. For example, if the all users or default users had a 50 MB movie called test.mpg in some local computer’s My Documents folder, then this test.mpg file too would be redirected as a file in the users’ My Documents.
This may be by design, but is there a way to stop this behavior? Basically, I do not want local computer files to synchronize; I just want to files to be redirected.
