I am trying to set up a redirect on XP laptops so that when a user logs in their My Documents is redirected to their network folder (Their username) on for example the A: . We have it set up with "basic redirect everyones folder to the same location". We would like to specify the drive it redirects to but it corrects it to "//%homeshare%%homepath%".

But it seems to work for some users and not others.

We have:
Always wait for network before startup or login [enabled]
Folder sync turned off
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy. slow link detection. set to 0.

Any help would be great thanks.
