Roaming Profiles / Folder Redirection

Hi Guys,

I have exhausted everything I can think of to resolve this issue. We have a customer who wants to have the ability to roam a "profile" between computers.

Using Roaming profiles they experienced a lot of issues where the user would delete a large number of files only to find them return the next day or on some occasions a few days later. On some occasions the deleting was done offline, on others it was done whilst online.

The deleted files have been removed form deleted items, and when they return to the desktop / my docs they also return to the recycle bin.

All this was experienced even if the user sticks with a single PC. To work around this issue I tried Folder Redirection in its place (Roaming Profiles still in place for roaming other aspects of the profile not covered by redirection).

This looked to work, but the same issue has reoccurred. Items deleted or moved return to their original location.

Is there a viable alternative to this horrid solution, or something I can do to try and resolve this issue?

All PC's are running Windows 7, and the server is running 2012.

Thanks
Chris

How will that work for the user to work offline? As in when using a laptop?

You never said about laptops or works offline. Thats works, but may not fit on your case.

seems this is working the way it should, its just an unacceptable scenario when a user spends hours tidying up their profile only to have it overwritten because they log into a machine where an old profile exists and it uploads all the moved data into its original location - closing the question
