App data folder redirection will not stop
Posted on 2009-12-21
I enabled folder redirection of the App Data folder, as well as Documents, and Photos. This has caused a very noticeable performance hit. So, I have disabled folder redirection of the App Data folder. Unfortunately, it won't stop working.
In properties, on the Settings tab, I have selected/checked "Move the contents of AppData to the new location" and "Redirect the folder back to the local userprofile when policy is removed".
On a Vista machine, I used gpupdate/force after disabling App Data folder redirection on the server. I then used rsop.msc to verify that the folder was not listing in the policy results. It is not there. All looks good.
However, folder redirection has not stopped.
Note: I did not have the setting checked to support older operating systems. Folder redirection was set to return the redirected files to the original location upon removing the policy.
What can I do to disable folder redirection for the AppData folder?
