I am setting up a network with 2008 server and win 7 workstations.  I want to make sure that users my documents files are backed up on the server.  Should I use a group policy to redirect my documents to the server?  If the server goes offline will users be able to access their files in my documents?  

Thanks for the help,

-Chuck

Re-directing the my Document folder and desktop is a good idea.  to ensure files are available if the server goes offline, Enable Folder synchronization.  this can be done through GPO or manually on each workstation.
