Move Remote Desktop Profile folders and Redirected user folders - Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-09-12
When creating my volumes for my users Remote Desktop Profile and redirected user folders in VMWare 4.1, I made the mistake of not making the block size large enough. I have all of our users data spanned across several volumes. I am fast approaching the limit of these volumes and need to increase.
I understand that once a block size is selected in VMware that it cannot be changed. If that is so, I need to relocate all of the Profiles and users data to a bigger volume.
Profile locations are defigned in AD under each users Remote Desktop Profile tab.
Folder redirection is set in Group policy.
How can I move/copy all of this data to a new volume and still retain the same permissions so there is no problem for the users?
When I make the new location live, I will use same Host\share name so GP and AD do not need to be changed.
Or if I am mistaken about not being able to increase block sizes, please correct me.
