Hi, hoping you can help with this strange problem. Have changed the Registry Key in Vista Ultimate 32-bit for a different location for 'My Music' folder, as have 2 iTunes Libraries need to run. Each time i re-boot the workstation, it resets itself to the Server ( SBS 2003 ) Music folder location.

Would appreciate any assistance you could provide !

In you SBS server Activce directory, the OU that your computer or your user account  is in most likely has a group policy that is redirecting your home folder (which includes your My Music folder) to the server.  Either move the accounts to a folder that do not have a group policy attached, or edit the policy and disable Folder Redirection.

It appears that you ran gpedit.msc from your local computer, which would not have Folder Redirection.
You have to follow those directions on your server.  You need to find where your user account exists in Active Directory on your server.  It will be in a folder called an OU.  Edit the policy that is applied to that OU.'

thanks Bill - i thought it was weird as well, but i was definitely going into the gpedit.msc from the Server - view screenshots attached. Also tried changing it from the 'Users' section in Server Management ( also in ScreenShots ), but still not working.

Can i create a script, or Registry Edit that loads everytime i log in ?

Mind you, haven't changed to SP2 in SBS 2003, because of MMC issues, but that couldn't affect it could it ?

Really appreciate all your help, thanks in advance !

Troy,
Do the following ...
Start -a CMD prompt as administrator
rsop.msc and hit enter...
This will generate a report and show what policies are in affect on your computer.
A window that looks like the group policy editor should appear, if you drill down under user configuration to where folder redrection is, you will be able to see if there is a policy in effect.
