Folder redirection and offline Cahce Issue
Posted on 2011-02-18
Environment: Windows 2003 DC's with client systems running XP, Visa and W7. Servers range from 2003 - 208R2
While I am not new to folder redirection I haven't done much with Offline folder caching.
We have a policy that redirects user folders to a server share. Once the policy is applied to a user the redirection works fine; however, the local copy of the folders and files is moved into the offline cache location. Meaning that there is no longer a copy of "My Document/Documents" under the user location. This is impacting all 3 client O/Ses.
Policy has been edited via a Windows 7 client system.
It doesn't matter the client operating system once the policy is in place you can no longer find the "Documents" folder on the local system.
I have not seen this before and can't find anything that indicates this is normal behavior.
