files and folders in folder redirection
Posted on 2012-04-10
We are in the process of testing Group Policy folder redirection (Application data, Desktop, My Documents and Start Menu) in our terminal server session for the purpose of migrating user profiles from a 2003 server to 2008. Upon applying the policy I've noticed that everything that was in the 2003 profile (My Docs and Desktop) are available on the new profile, but they are duplicated. So, everything that was in My Docs is now also on the Desktop, and everything that was on the Desktop is now also in My Docs. There are also additional folders appeared on both the Desktop & My Docs called Identities, Microsoft and Programs. Is there a way that we could prevent these files and folders from duplicating?
