Portions of this question are from a post I saw somewhere else but were not answered. I have heavily modified the info to apply exactly to my situation.
Windows Server 2003
Active Directory at Windows 2003 Functional level
Windows XP with SP3
I am redirecting "My Documents" to a share on a file server.
The problem I'm having is that "My Pictures" is being redirected to the
server in a folder under "My Documents". I want "My Pictures" along with "My Music"
and "My Videos" to point to the local hard drive as we don't have a business
use for these so they shouldn't be saved on the server. Not only that, they are huge and we don't have room for that but we NEED the redirection of My Docs.
I found this http://windowsxp.mvps.org/redirectfolders.htm
and tried to manually set the three
paths to "C:\" in these keys:
"My Music" and "My Video" stay pointed to "C:\", but if I logout and logon,
"My Pictures" keeps pointing back to the server. I've tried deleting my
profile (thinking the setting was stored somewhere else in the profile), but
every time I logon the setting is changed. Is there a way to force "My
Pictures" to point to "C:\"?
I know the standard answer is simply "NO" but there must be a way by now that someone has figured out how to do this. Any ideas? Thanks a million!
