folder redirect with Windows 10

Hi Experts,

In our existing setup which consists of a Windows Server 2008R2 Domain Controller, we have a badly set up roaming profile environment, (I didn't set this up) but if I logged in to a laptop, and took the laptop home, my profile wasn't available, due to not having folder redirect with offline files.

Anyway I upgraded my Laptop to Win10. And now I am attempting to set up folder redirect with offline files, I updated my ADMX files on the DC for for Windows 10.

Seems to be a known issue setting up folder redirect in Windows 10.

If somebody could assist me through setting this up I would appreciate it a lot.

Thanks

roaming profiles AND folder redirection are 2 separate entities
roaming profiles does everything under the C:\users\username folder, folder redirection does a subset of this.  Some companies use both in order to save time and network bandwidth on logon/logoff as roaming profiles copy EVERYTHING back and forth, folder redirection doesn't copy anything it REDIRECTS them to a network location.

I have not successfully managed to set up roaming profile AND folder redirect .. I am using a windows 10 laptop to test the user account with the folder redirect GPO applied.. and the AD account I am using, is set up with a home folder, and profile path. (which is both set to the exact same folder, see attchment)

This user is placed in a test OU, with it's own policy, a test policy where I have only configured the folder redirects for ALL folders.

Yet when I log into the windows 10 laptop, patched in on a LAN, I get a 'temporary profile' warning.. and if I save anything to the documents folder, or the desktop... it is not copying this to the network on log off...

as well as the logoff process taking an extremely long time, up to 15 minutes.

Any ideas? Am I miles out?? or is it a windows 10 issue.. funnily.. i have no windows 7 laptops to test with unfortunately.
