Hi all,

i recently tried using roaming profiles on our server for a while but decided against it becuase our vpns are soo slow (crappy isp)

so now ive turned off folder redirection and roaming profiles, but users are still syncing with the server and their my documents are still located on the server, ive gone into my comptuer > advnaced > profiles and set them all to local but they are still getting everyting from the server

what can i do to stop it?

Thanks

[...] you may want to stop Folder Redirection for one or more users. However, before you try to stop Folder Redirection, you must first enable the Redirect the folder back to the local userprofile location when policy is removed Group Policy setting.
