Desktop icons disappear for some users with RDP, roaming profile, and redirected folders
Posted on 2013-01-25
2008 R2 w/ RDS, roaming profiles, and redirected folders.
I have about 130 users using setup. Several months ago a couple of users had their desktop icons keep disappearing. Pressing F5 would restore them, although not in their specific locations. Over the last few months this problem has increased to where most of users are having this problem. Sometimes users also lose connection to their redirected folders for a brief moment, but not all users on same RDS server are affected.
So my questions-
1. When losing connection to redirected folder, why aren't all users affected at same time when they are on same server? I would think that a physical issue would affect all users.
2. Icon issue also affects users at different times even when on same RDS server. How to fix?
