We have an MS Access database that uses the Roaming Profile folder for the front-end and for various temporary files (some of our installations are running on Citrix or RDP and this works really well).  Everything works perfectly, with the exception of PCs that have FolderRedirection enabled.  On those PC we get problems, which appear to be timing & locking issues.

Folder example: C:\Users\Andrew\AppData\Roaming\TS

Is there any way to exclude this folder from FolderRedirection, whilst leaving everything else in tact.  Everything important within this folder is on the server, so it does not need to be synced / backed-up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
