Remove folder redirection
Posted on 2011-04-29
I manage an SBS 2003 server with Windows 7 clients and recently implemented folder redirection for My Documents and Application Data. I am new to this subject and made the change to the default domain policy.
Now the network is often slow, occasionally all PCs freeze for 10 - 20 seconds so I would like to undo the folder redirection, starting with Application data.
The Target Setting is Basic, with Target folder location at default of "Create a folder for each user under the root path", and Policy Removal setting is set to "Redirect the folder back to the local userprofile location...".
if I change the Target Setting to Unconfigured, the clients App Data still remians redirected no matter how many times the PC is rebooted. If I do a GPResult /H GPReport.html I can see the settings for Document redirection, and Video, Music and Pictures, but Application data doesn't even show up.
ICan I force the removal by re-enabling the redirection Target Setting of Basic, and change target folder location to "Redirect to the local userprofile location"?
Thanks in advance,
