How can I turn off Folder Redirection in SBS 2008?

I guess this one is straightforward. My computer which is Win 7 Pro has the My Documents folder redirected to the D:\ drive of the server. I would like to turn that off. I have looked in the SBS console, figuring it must be there somewhere, but I am not sure where if it is.

    Check the link above and uncheck the items you wan to redirect in the SBS wizard and gpupdate /force to update group policy that should do it.

    It's been a little while since I've done this on SBS2008, but if I remember correctly the SBS console/wizard only operates on a domain-wide basis.

    If you want it turned on by default but want to exclude specific user(s)/group(s) it can be done manually through some GPO tinkering.

    Ok. I will check out both when I return to work. I'm very sorry for the delay.
