I redirected all users profiles to a network share with exclusive access via GPO in server 2003. Some users have shortcuts to shared folders between them with co-authored documents in them.

I've noticed that the sync extends to these folders although they are just shortcuts to places outside of the users profile. Maybe the conflicts has something to do with how offline files are handled or something in the GPO I did no enable/disable.

I am not sure but it has been creating conflicts and errors relating to these shared folders. How o stop that from happening? I have sync enabled for when logoff. I am lost here... Is there a better way to handle these shared files?

Thanks in advance for replying.
