Group Policy or Folder Re-Direction trick / setting
Posted on 2011-02-16
Windows 2003 terminal server:
I have a setup where the previous IT person somehow has all the user folders "mirroring" on the administator user's desktop. Folder redirection was not setup in group policy for my documents, only desktop. However my docouments target location was altered for each user. So here is the setup, and what is displaying:
D:\Users = Where the User folders on the terminal server are.
D:\Users\%username%\docs = Where the my documents target folder is for each user.
D:\Users\%username%\desktop = Where Group Policy Folder Redirection puts desktop files.
The administrator user shows all of the folders that are in D:\Users on the adminstrator's desktop. If I add a user, that user's folder immediately shows up on the Administrator user's desktop. So it's not shortcuts. What setting is enabling this?
