Maybe you have to turn off the File Validation Feature? I've seen it many times with Office 2003 and Office 2007, but I suppose it is still part of Office 2013.

I'd this issue also: \\dfs\resource was slow or even not working, while \\targetserver\resource was fine. In my case, the problem was DFS root server was W2008 R2 and the target was located on a W2003. Apparently, they use a different version of NTFS, so when not specified, w2003 assumes user have always the Traverse folders, but w2008 R2 assumes the ...

First suggestion is to use the fully qualified domain name of the server in your UNC path (\\SERVERNAME.domain.tld\Folder Redirection\) and see if that resolves it. Second suggestion is to make the file folder available offline via the hostname, by ...

As mentioned in the comments by Joe, what you're probably seeing is Windows moving the redirected folders to a new path when the user logs in. It's also possible, but less likely, that one of those is just a junction point that you copied when you used the GUI (!) to do this. Either way, it shouldn't cause the problem you fear, but it will probably result ...

Here's hat I've found will cause the folder to be recreated: Remove the Home folder setting from the user object and apply. Wait for AD replication (which should be near instantaneous between DC's in the same site). Reconfigure the Home folder setting on the user object. Wait for AD replication (which should be near instantaneous between DC's in the same ...

There's absolutely no vulnerability here - you simply need to ensure your shares are secured properly.
