I have SBS R2 running with approximately 20 users running XP Pro, I have used a GPO to redirect the My Documents folder to a 2003 R2 server shared folder. When a user opens their My Documents folder via the shortcut on the start menu or in a program and makes a change (i.e. add folder or rename a folder) that change will not appear without them having to manually refresh the explorer window. If the user navigates to their My Documents folder without selecting the My Documents shortcut everything works fine. Has anyone ever experienced this or does anyone do how to fix this?
