Folder redirection and Sync for desktops
Posted on 2013-11-05
Hello, I have a site that has a windows 2008r2 server for a DC and a windows 2008r2 database/file server. I have a mix of windows xp and windows 7 desktops, mostly windows xp.
When I set this up I configured the network to redirect "my documents" to a shared folder so all work would be kept on the server. I also redirected the desktop to the server.
Most of the windows xp desktops sync everytime I log off and that does not seem practical. If I have the desktop and document folders on the file server I don't think it should have to sync.
My question, what is the best practice way to have this configured? Should it sync? Any recommendations on production experience would be appreciated. Please no "theory".
