We have turned on Desktop folder redirection on a couple of clients as a test because we are planning on rolling it out to all our clients. When the computers are connected to the network everythig is fine, but when a computer logs on while off the network a local desktop folder doesnt get created ( leading to loads of annoying error messages about network path not found ). Also really weird microsoft word keeps flagging up an error about a file called normal.dotm  which im sure isnt placed on the desktop anyway .
 Any ideas on how we can get the local desktop folder to be created when there is no network connection and any ideas why word is flagging up that error about the file?

are your users on roaming profiles? the normal.dotm should be part of their profile so maybe it isn't syncing

Use Offline Folder settings on a server share where the users data is stored.
This is especially useful for users with laptops. In particular, redirected folders of any type should be coupled with Offline Files.
