Windows 7 Netapp folder redirection issue
Posted on 2014-03-31
I have Windows 2008R2 servers and Windows 7 Enterprise clients. I have been redirecting the My Documents folder to a file server for years. We are now decommissioning the server and need to move all the users My Documents over to a NetApp CIFS share.
The problem is that if I create a new GPO and have Windows move the My Documents, user login times will suffer taking up tp 30-60 minutes. How can I do this in the nest most efficient way possible?
I tried to restore from backup to the Netapp however for some reason only the My Documents folder is restored and not the users home directory.
I have heard of some people using robocopy as well.
Any help with detailed examples (especially if robocopy is suggested) would be great.
