Hi

We have recently migrated to WIndows SBS 2011 from SBS 2003.

All went very well accept the My Documents Folder Redirection Policy is not updating on the client machines.

We have force updated group policy on the client machines and have checked that it has been applied however the policy is still not updating the actual location of the my documents folder.

The old group policy objects have been removed and we are now a little stuck.

Any help grately appreiciated.

On you Windows client, if you run RSOP.msc, what policies are applied?

What version is the Windows client?

Have you checked the Windows event viewer for further errors?

I didn't do that and thanks very much for pointing it out.
