I'm trying to create a shortcut using GPP. It's not working??? I've enclosed a picture of what I'm doing. the argument echo %username:-3,99% is there because I have wrm in front of all user names but the folders on the user drive don't have that. That was suppose to off set that. It worked for one test machine but it's not working now. I'm not sure that's the issue but the GPO is working because the 1st half redirects the "my documents" folder to the server. Windows 7 doesn't have a shortcut for this on the desktop and my users are used to it so I tried to do it this way.
