I'm trying to redirect my users' Downloads folder to a share on my server.  It works, but it changes the user's "Downloads" folder name and icon to the name of the share on the network.  I would like for it to keep the default naming convention to provide transparency to the user.

I want to redirect the folder to a common shared resource that all users will be able to see and collaborate with on the server.  So here's how I did it:

Sharing Information:
Administrators: Full Control
Authenticated Users: Change Permissions

Security Info:
SYSTEM & Administrators: Full Control
Authenticated Users: Everything except Full Control, Change Permissions, and Take Ownership; Apply to this folder, subfolders and files.
