"Folder redirection failed" on Win 7 Pro workstation
Posted on 2011-02-23
I have a network with a SBS 2008 server. Although all users are configured to use a redirected Documents folder (\\server\redirected...), two recent Windows 7 Pro installations failed to set up the redirected documents folder, saying the folder wasn't indexed.
I indexed it, and added the redirected folder to the library and it seemed fine.
One of the users is experiencing huge delays and progress boxes lasting up to 20 seconds when saving even tiny documents. His event log mentioned a delay in processing group policy updates, so I ran GPUPDATE /force on the workstation, logged off/on, and so far it seems fine.
However, on the SBS 2008 machine, in Group Policy Management, I ran a Group Policy Results wizard on his domain logon name and machine. One error in the results: "Folder redirection failed due to the error listed below." The error listed is: "Cannot complete this function."
I can't seem to find the source of this problem. Anyone have any advice?
