Hello All,

Upgrading server from SBS 2011 to 2019 standard.  Currently have Group Policy in place for Folder Redirection but with the File History feature in Windows 10 would it be better to switch to File History or stick with Folder Redirection?

I know changing the Group Policy for Folder Redirection to a new location will cause login delays the next time the users login, and depending on how much data they have it can take quite awhile. I was originally planning to do that in groups until I remembered about File History.

Does anyone have experanice with File History or an opinon on what would be the best way to go and can you set up a Group Policy for File History?
