Home Drives and My Documents GPO Redirection issues

Hi All,

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

Splitting the points because you all said basically the same thing, which all works.

Not sure why the way we had it was so messed up.

Thanks all
