Roaming profiles maintaining copies of redirected My Documents and Desktop
Posted on 2008-11-03
We have recently upgraded some of our network machines (XP Pro SP3) so to help in the user migration to the new machines i enabled Roaming Profiles for out users. Previous to this we had My Documents and Desktop folder redirection working perfectly. However now it appears that local copies are being created of My Documents and Desktop every time a user logs on, these folders are also being copied to the users profile directory.
As well as this there are some weird sync issues, such as a user deleting a file locally, logging off and back on and the file magically reappearing. This also happens if they delete the file locally, and i remove the file from the users network share.
This doesn't seem to be a problem for all users on all machines, just a select few.
Very odd, not entirely sure what is going on.
