I am currently building a lab to get familiar with Microsoft's new "Work Folder" feature. I am looking for a way to abandon folder redirection and offline files.

So far I have one Windows 7 client connected to the my servers synced-share (had to install an additional package). This work folder show's up under Desktop => User => Work Folders, beneath Documents, etc. So far so good.

Now I am wondering how one would move all the user folders (Documents, Downloads, Favorites, ...) to this Work Folder. Is there any best-pracice or real life experience out there?

I am kind a confused here... can someone shed some light on this? Thanks in advance

[Addendum]

What worked pretty well in my lab environment is applying a GPO that redirects Documents, Downloads, ... to C:\Users\%username%\Work Folders\Documents. I even have a boost in performance as IOs remain local and do not have to travel over the network.

I do not think that there is a way around folder redirection in this situation.

We Love work folders as the new folder redirection for our domain. What we do is we redirect the users documents, desktop and favorites to c:\ work folders and then have work folders sync that information on the domain to our FSRM where we can further classify the data for encryption
