Folder redirection problems with Skype
Posted on 2008-10-14
First of all please excuse my poor english.
We have a Windows server 2008 Active directory based network, with some folders redirected for all users on a domain policy basis; one of these folders is the "Application Data" folder. All applications that store information in the "Application Data" folder work ok in this scenario. Skype also seems to work ok, but when a user tries to close a Windows session many synchronization problems with skype *.dbb files are displayed, and the session doesn't finish ok. This is very strange because we are not using roaming profiles, we're redirecting folders, so no synchronization there would be needed at all.
All clients are using Windows XP Professional SP3 or Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 based machines. Server is Windows Server 2008 Standard x64. All affected files seems to be the *.dbb ones.
Anyone knows any way to solve this problem? As far as I know domain policies for folder redirection don't support any kind of exclusions, so the only way I know to avoid this problem is not to redirect the Application Data folder, but we need to redirect this folder.
Thanks in advance.
