Folder Redirection GPO Works, but WMP does not see new My Music
Posted on 2009-07-14
Maybe this is because of the method that this GPO was deployed, but basically, the GPO for My Document redirection works, but WMP, when going to rip a CD, points to the old UNC path (even though the old location for My Documents was from a mapped drive and not a UNC path).
THe process that this GPO is setup is that the users My Documents (with My Music as a sub-directory) was moved to the new server, had the permissions setup, and the GPO is instructed to create a new folder at this location (but it won't as the directory with the username is already created in this location).
Any ideas why Windows Media Player looks to the old server, and then CREATES a directory as the user's name with a My Documents and a My Music within there? I have verified that the user's My Documents IS pointing to the correct location because of the GPO.
