I want to use Group Policy to redirect my users' My Documents folders to their network user folders. When I choose the GP setting that says "Redirect to the user's home directory", it changes all of my users' folder names to "My Documents" on my server. According to this article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947222, the behavior is by design, but it doesn't seem right. Has anybody had better luck doing this?
I agree with HopelessN00b but I recently dealt with this myself so I think I understand. It's caused by the desktop.ini file created by Windows. You can either block the file from being created (maybe using FSRM), empty the file and make it read only or redirect the folder to a subdirectory of the remote user folder (e.g. \server\share$\%username%\Documents).
There may be other options but these are three I evaluated. I went with the last option and redirected other folders to their own subdirectories.
