W7 & Desktop Icon badges changing

My office is currently in the process of migrating from XP to W7.
Our AD structure is 2003
We have Folder Redirection turned on for Desktop, Documents, Favs.
We are using Citrix Profile Manager to handle both logins to VDI and Phyiscal machines.

Since this started we are seeing the Icon Badges change.  The weird thing is we only see this on the Phyiscal Machines.

I have attached a couple of images to show what I am talking about..

Perhaps, yes.

See if this article will allow you to track the issue down:

Those look like they are coming from the Citrix Profile Manager - if you caught the \Application Data\Citrix\PNAgent\Icon Cache in the folders to synchronize, then you're now getting the new 32-bit icons instead of the older 8-bit ones.

Just a guess.....

We had a consultant set this environment up so I am not sure what is being sychronzed.  Where can I check for this option?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I believe it's coming from Group Policy - a Citrix Template.

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Citrix > Profile Management > File system > Synchronization; Directories to synchronize.

You would probably need (unless you knew already) to run GPRESULT /v on a client to see where this policy element is being set (which GPO).

No clue. I will shoot the consultant a line asking what that is.

Probably a good idea.  I don't know enough about this product to be certain - but it makes sense.

He never replied to that e-mail.
I will resend it now.  Thanks for the reminder.

He came back that that is a default setting with Citrix Profile Managment.

I would toadd additional configuration settings:
We are running Folder Redirection for Desktop, Documents and Favs.
The data is housed on one of our DC's (2003) which is a LUN that is mounted.
This server is also indexing the mounted LUN with Windows Search 4.0.

Could this be the cause of our issue.
To note: I and many others are experinencing freezes when accessing files located on the desktop.

This did not address the Icon changing issue, but seems to have resolved the hanging or slow response when right clicking on an Icon.
