Folder redirection in windows 7
Posted on 2013-01-01
This might be a question already answered but I havent been able to find a clear answer.
In an Windows 2008 R2 (the fileserver) client/server environment with Windows 7 Pro (the clients) we have an \\server\users$ share with an home folder for each user (about 60 pcs + 80 users).
It seems this is a known issue. When a first user logs on to a pc with his roaming profile and folder redirection (by GPO) this works fine. Redirecting Documents works fine pointing towards the home drive and \documents. When a second user logs on to the same pc with his roaming profile folder redirection does not work.
This supposedly is because the folder redirection cache or something.
Does anyone have an idea on how to solve this?
