I am not sure WHAT happened, but we have an employee that had a name change.   They now log into the network as jdoe.   (Old name jsmith)   No idea what was done to CHANGE or just create new profiles...........but, here is my dilemma.  

Moving user to a new PC.    Set up and logged in for jdoe.   Found favorites on old PC.....which for some reason was still under jsmith.   But copied the favorites.    Put the files in C:\Users\jdoe\favorites.         Open IE and no favorites.    So to test, removed the files I copied.   Opened a browser window and did the ADD TO FAVORITES.     Link showing in favorites.     I then open C:\Users\jdoe\favorites and it's empty.

Where in the world are these being stored??????

I just found the test.    I guess we have a folder redirection for favorites on our network.

Is this the normal procedure???    I am learning as I go..  and want to continue to to it correctly.

Yes. It is normal to redirect favourites in the absence of roaming profiles. I personally only redirect My Documents but I've seen people redirect Favourites, AppData et all using folder redirection.
