I want to role out folder redirection to reduce network overhead on a system with a number of roaming profile users. The problem i observerd today on one of the clients is this.
Outline of process
In active directory z:\ is set on each user to point to the folder for their "my documents" the folder name has the $ after the name.
Each user has been asked to move the my documents by right click on my documents properties change the default path to Z;\ and issue the move command and agree to the move. On one of the machines the move request is followed by a path box to select the folder to move to as if the machine does not know where z:\ is. I have checked the existence of Z:\ in my computer, i have enetered z:\ in the run path and the folder is found straight away. I have entered the full path in unc covention in the folder path of the default folder loaction in the move and it still shows the folder selection path.
