Redirected Folder Issue

One of my clients has an xp workstation which has My Documents folder redirected to the sbs server. I have since replaced his workstation with a Windows 7 Machine.

For some reason his my documents are not being transferred from the server. When I go into his user folder & properties of My Documents it points to his local c drive.

I have tried to change the location but it won’t allow me to make any changes to the folder location. I have also checked on his user profile on the server & everything looks as it should be.

Any ideas?

Hello there , have you tried changing his My Documents Folder location , from Registry Editor , if not it would be a thing to try :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Try this first

When i look in both these locations there are no entries for My Documents??
It should be under the name of Personal , can you see it (i think it is in the User Shell Folders) , also have you tried deleting the desktop.ini file inside My Documents ?
