Redirected My Documents folder
Posted on 2012-03-21
I have group policies that redirect users "My Documents" folders to their home server share. The redirection works fine but I discovered that the redirection names the documents folder to "Username Documents" instead of "My Documents". For example, Joe gets "Joe's Documents" instead of "My Documents".
Here's the problem. I often write scripts or do registry punches on my users folders. Having them all named "My Documents" or "Documents" makes these taskd relatively easy. Having each user's documents folder uniquely named renders this almost impossible.
The group policy even gives the example at the bottom:
For user Clair, this folder will be directed to:
When you look in their folder afterwards the folder is actually names "Clair's Documents". I want it to be named "My Documents" like the policy says it will.
Can anyone explain this and possibly recommend a solution?
