group policy items

What is best practice or what have you used that hasn't failed?
  • Creating a hidden share from file server for all group policy images, icons, apps etc.
  • Creating a folder in netlogon for items mentioned along with logon scripts etc.

*desktop wallpaper images, icons for websites, gp applications, etc.

I have read a few forums where techs would share from their DC and sysvol. I feel it be convenient to share straight from File Server as hidden share and utilizing NTFS permissions, of course via security groups.

if can get me some ideas or best practice.

It's not really that important where the data comes from. I'd choose the file server, to keep the DC as light as possible.
Sysvol is replicated, so you'd have the data accessible at all times, unless all DCs are down, but then you have bigger problems anyway - but still, the file server should be redundant, too - so not really an argument for using the DC again.
