Folder redirection does not move the files to the new target folder.
Posted on 2007-11-27
I configured the folder redirectin setting on the group policy for my terminal servers (loopback policy). When the users log on the terminal server the My Documents folder gets redirected successfully but the content of the old folder is not moved to the new location. I do have that setting checked in the policy but it just does not everytime. I have enabled the extended event logging for folder redirection and I do not see any errors. The log shows the policy as applied successfully, folder redirected successfully, files being moved, no error after that and then unable to delete files from old location. I guess since the policy did not copy the files to the new location it was unable to delete them from the old one. i have checked permission in the target folder and System and users belonging to the security group for which this policy applies have full rights. The target is a DFS share (Would this be a problem?) Any suggestions??
