2008R2 Remote Desktop Server Folder Redirection

I am trying to use Group Policy to Redirect Folders for 2008R2 Remote Desktop Server users.

In AD, I add "\\CT01\Root\RDS_Profiles\MMouse" for Remote Desktop Services Profile.

In Group Policy, I redirect folders like desktop - using Basic - Redirection to "\\CT01\Root\RDS_Profiles"

When a user logs on, it creates the folder "\\CT01\Root\RDS_Profiles\MMouse.V2", but also creates a folder "\\CT01\Root\RDS_Profiles\MMouse"  - this folder is where all of my Redirected folders wind up.

How can I get the redirected folders into the .V2 location

Or is this not recommended?  i.e. should I keep the redirected folders in the separate folder?

what is recommended is to not play with them and let the o/s do its job as it knows what it is doing.. you set the general guidelines

The .v2 is for compatibility reasons.  The common items don't get the .v2 suffix and the .v2 area is for items that are specific to vista/Wndows 7.  Windows 8/8.1 will add a .v3 and windows 10 will give a .v4 this keeps incompatible profile items separated

In our environment we have the RDS profiles and Redirected folders separate in different folders on the same share.
