Migrate Favorites from Local to Network for VMWare

Last Modified: 2014-05-22
Hi All,

My department is getting ready to recompose desktops that have recently been updated and tweaked.  With this, we have an issue with bookmarks that people have in their Internet Explorer.  I want to know if anyone found a way to use either a GPO or a script to migrate the bookmarks from a local instance of the user's profile, to a network drive?  Further, because we are rolling out Chrome and have the ADM files loaded for GPO, how do I setup a link in the Chrome GPO to specify the drive for the newly available bookmarks within that network folder?

Or if anyone has any other type of suggestion, I'd appreciate it.
