It's in exactly the same location as it used to be. In the GPO Editor, go to User Configuration, Windows Settings, Folder Redirection. Within that GPO policy container, you will find lots of different folders which you can redirect. Right-click one of the folders and choose "Properties" to configure the Folder Redirection.

The screenshots in that guide posted by LegendZM are taken from a Server 2003 machine - the procedure in Server 2008 is exactly the same (as per my first comment above) but there is a much wider variety of folders which can be redirected.

It is true it's from a Windows 2003 server, however, the steps are the same. Hopefully the pictures will provide some direction as to the actual locations Tigermatt was speaking of. :)

I'm trying to get the terminal server to redirect the desktop and c drive back to the client desktop and c drive automatically through group policy. How would I do this?

kenfitzgerald,

Thanks for following up. Just for future reference, it is always a good idea to post a new question if you have a different question to what is described in a PAQ. This will get more Expert attention and follows the EE guidelines more appropriately.

In this case though, what you need to do is set the Folder Redirection settings to "Redirect to the local User Profile location", which will then send it back to the C:\ drive default location.

I posted a new question, and no one has answered it. it is titled How do I redirect the desktop on a terminal server back to the client pc. Also, I don't see how to redirect the whole c drive. Is that an option?
