Windows 2008 Server - Folder Redirection Error

Last Modified: 2012-09-25
Hi Experts,

I have checked through our logs and seen the following error:
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "RoamingAppData" to "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming".
 Redirection options=9221.
 The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming"".
 Error details: "This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.

Open in new window

I have checked through GP and we dont seem to have any policy in place for Folder Redirection.

I have also checked the permisions of the users folder and it seems to be all good.

Any help will be appreciated.
