Document Redirection Server 2008 R2 Terminal Server

Hi, I'm wanting to use folder redierction on a 2008 R2 server via GPO

I want to redirect "Documents" path for all users belonging to a group security to the same network share, but when I do this, the second user gets the error that my videos, downloads etc are corrupt and need to be deleted.  The first user to login works fine.

All I want to achieve is all users to use the same document path.

Is there a way of doing this without my videos, my downloads etc from redirecting as well?

You need to select the sub-folder that you want to redirect in the group policy - you can exclude my pictures from the redirect  My Documents redirect
see this MS article:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc782799(WS.10).aspx
Hope this helps you

Thank you.  I had just resolved the issue myself but the Make My Pictures a default" option is greyed out.
I'm up and working by removing the exclusive rights as I want more than one user using this folder.

Thank you
