Hi all,

ive just started to roll out folder redirection, redirecting my docs/desktop to a replicated dfs share

if i copied the users local data to the server manually, would redirection be happy with that or would it try overwrite it?

also im sure some people have come across this before, what would you do for a laptop user? who has a desktop and a laptop they work from home wit, we have remote access vpn, but our isp has terrible upload speeds so we cant expect a user to wait 2 minutes per word doc they want to open

what do you guys do for laptop users?

would you apply a loopback so the redirection is on the computers rather than the users or will that not work?

thanks for any advice
