Home Drives and My Documents GPO Redirection issues
Posted on 2013-12-31
We have a bit of an annoying issue in our Windows 7/Server 2008 environment.
Each of our users gets a home drive on our file server. This server gets mapped to their as their X drive - \\server\homedrives\username
We also have a Group Policy which redirects peoples Documents to their home drive.
ISSUE - If someone opens their home drive, they have a folder inside called My Documents which is the GPO redirect.
So essentially.. the Home Drive (X) takes them to one place, and the GPO redirect takes them to a folder WITHIN the X drive, not the X drive itself.
WHat I would like to accomplish is to have my GPO take them to the X drive itself. Is this possible? Or should I just do away with the X drive and only use the DOcument redirect?
Document Redirect GPO - \\server\HomeDrives\%USERNAME%\Documents
