Hi,

This is strange.

Folder Redirection through GPO in 2003 AD, did not work only for one user, when we changed her PC from XP to Windows 7.

Other users are all fine with folder redirection when we replaced their computer from XP to 7.

Thanks,

Few questions,
- what are you using for security filtering on the GPO?
- Have you run rsop.msc on the workstation in question?
- if this user logs into another machine does folder redirection work?
- Is the computer in the proper OU where the policy is applied?
- Have you checked the logs (on the workstation) to see if there are any errors related to GPO?

My guess is that the user or machine is not part of the proper OU where the policy is being applied. i.e users new computer was not moved from the Computers container to the appropriate OU.

Will.

what are you using for security filtering on the GPO? We are not using anything.

 - Have you run rsop.msc on the workstation in question? yes

 - if this user logs into another machine does folder redirection work? No they do not, if its a Windows 7 PC. Works ok with XP machines.

 - Is the computer in the proper OU where the policy is applied? Yes.
 - Have you checked the logs (on the workstation) to see if there are any errors related to GPO?
Please see attached.
