Terminal Server 2008 - forcing users to save on a network share
Posted on 2011-02-22
I have shares created for users and departments on a file server. Those shares are mapped with a script when a user loggs in to the domain on their computers. Users save folders to those mapped drives.
The same applies when they log in to Terminal Server - Win 2008.
When they log in to TS however, they stop using the mapped drives to save files. They save into their profiles on TS - Desktop or My Documents.
I do not backup computers or user profiles on the TS.
Second, file management is much easier if they are located in designated locations.
Third, whey their profiles grow OS drive on TS gets Low Disk space warnings and we have to go through the 'move' files proces.
Is there a way to prevent / force users to save into the mapped shares when they log in to Terminal Server?
