Folder Redirection and Roaming Profile, file synchronization
Posted on 2009-02-20
I'm considering deploying either roaming profiles or folder redirection. The roaming profile would be on stored on a file server, special folders would be redirected to the file server as well. To clarify, I would either use a roaming profile or folder redirection, but not both. Anyhow, if a workstation becomes disconnected from the network and files on the workstation change, will Windows prompt the user to choose which files to keep? Here's my issue, I don't work with the most computer savvy users, if they see a prompt on the computer they'll freak out at just the site of something they're not expecting to see. If local files are different than the files stored on the server due to a network disconnection, I would like Windows to keep the newest files by default instead of prompting the user. Is this possible?
