I have recently added a Windows Server 2008 DC to a domain, the previous 2003 Server will be removed in the near future.
We previously used Windows XP desktops on this domain, but we are in the process of changing this to Windows 7 64 bit for all computers on the domain.
Due to a problem with one of the group policies, I have recreated the policy defining the folder redirection and have encountered a problem with the My Documents path.
On both 2003 and 2008 server the path required for users documents in the policy is: \\servername\share
In the policy created on server 2003 this is automatically appended to become:
However in the policy created on server 2008 R2 this path is appended to become:
This means that the users My Documents shortcut now points to a new empty folder and their previous documents are unavailable.
Can anyone suggest a good way to move all of the users files from the old to the new location whilst maintaining appropriate permissions without moving it all manually?
