Some folders get excluded from Roaming profiles
Posted on 2009-04-23
Has anyone ever seen a scenario whereby you setup a standard Roaming Profiles, using Windows 2003 AD domain and for some unkown reason certain folders within the users roaming profile structure are autoatically excluded. Some of the folders that the system deletes and excludes include, Desktop, Local Settings, Application Data, etc. etc. The only folders left in the shared roaming profile location are Cookies, Favourites and Windows. Even if I recreate those folders manually or copy a complete profile from somewhere else, all foders except the above mentioned seem to get deleted automatically as the user logs off their sessions using Windows XP.
The only other thing I have setup for the users is folder redirection via GPO, to redirect their my documents. All clients are Windows XP, Win2k3 AD, server hosting roaming profiles is a member server with a simple hidden share.
Any ideas appreciated.
