Disable My Documents / Desktop Redirection for one user in SBS 2008
Posted on 2009-02-10
I have a SBS 2008 domain with 15 users. All users' My Documents & Desktops are redirected to the server. I have one engineer who does a lot of CAD work and the sync is really slowing him down. He maintains his own backups, so I feel comfortable removing him from the redirection policy.
I know SBS 2008 makes it easy to manage folder direction on a per-user basis. I have went in through the SBS console and turned folder redirection off for this user.
However, he is still syncing with the server and his My Documents is still pointing to the server share. I have forced a GP update on his machine, logged on and off multiple times... all to no avail.
Any suggestions out there on getting his folders to stop redirecting to the server?
Thanks in advance,
