Redirected Folders delete the documents folder?

mikeydk used Ask the Experts™

Our users on RDS have redirected their documents, start menu, search and so on... to their homedrive. (Using GPO)

On one of the servers some users did get their documents deleted at logon (when appying the redirection GPO). Why does this happens? (or how to awoid this behavior?)

The server is now offline

Another of the EEple (and I wish I could recall which one) observed this behavior when, while document redirection is taking place, the network connection is lost at all that files will be deleted rather than moved.
