Windows 7 Favorites Folder Redirection
Posted on 2013-06-10
I have setup a folder redirection group policy for windows 7. The Documents folder is set to redirect to the users homefolder. The music, videos, and picture folders are set to follow the documents folder. Everything here is working. When I set the favorites folder to redirect to %homeshare%\favorites I get the following error: "Can not redirect parent into descendant" "The specified path is invalid." If I set favorites to redirect to %homeshare% it works, but dumps the favorites into the root of the homefolder and not a favorites folder. I would like the favorites to redirect to a favorites folder like music, pictures, and videos do. Most of my users are coming form XP so there is not a favorites folder in most users homefolder. I have tried it with an existing favorites folder and without a existing folder. I get the same error.
