2 favorites folders and no functionality
When I view my profile on a my system I have 2 favorites folders.
Folder one has this message upon access
\\sbs\profiles\Redirected\cpuowner\favorites is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. This file is currently not available for use on this computer. It also has a brown folder and a X on it and no location tab in the properties
Folder two opens and displays my favorites but does not contain a location tab in the properties
As a result IE will not display my favorites
This happened as a result of trying out roaming profiles on the server. In the end I would like to redirect the favorites folder to the server.

You will need to setup folder redirection via GPO so it points to particular folder on the server. This way you wouldn't see such a thing on your PC.

I would login to the server and make sure that your profiles are correct than delete the profile on the desktop, enable the GPO for folder redirection

than log back into the desktop.

Hope it helps

I no longer use roaming profiles
Its my understanding that you can only use gpo redirection on desktop, app data, documents and start menu, not favs. Given this im not sure how you would redirect the favs folder using gpo on the server.

The solution was to connect the machine to the network and delete folder 2. Then make folder ones location tab redirect it to the server. Next enable offline files on the directory.
