I have recently deployed folder redirection on a server 2008 R2 network. There is only one server on this network, so it is AD DC
All work stations are running windows 10.
Prior to invoking folder redirection, the system was running roaming profiles. The profile was set to \\namespace\users\ and a directory was first created as \\name space users\%username%. after first log on in windows 10 the appropriate .v5 or .v6 directory was created and the user profile resided there.
After deploying folder redirection, I indicated the basic setting and directed "create folder for each user under root path" which I indicated would be \\namespace\users. All files were moved to \\namespace\users\%username% instead of \\namespace\users\%username%.v6.
The permissions were correct on the moved folders, so that was good. The challenge is that this folder is used for collecting other items such as from a scanner, various backup scenarios etc. so is looking very cluttered.
I would like to have the folders redirected to a different location such as \\namespace\profiles\%username%. If I edit the policy to reflect this, will the data be moved to the new location or will I need to do that manually. Are there any other known repercussions of changing the location? Will I need to change the location in roaming profiles to reflect any changes in folder redirection?
