I am looking for a way to essentially reverse file and folder redirection after it has been set up and configured using Group Policy.
Right now I have a file server that I am hanging a file share off to enable network storage for the redirected profiles. In my testing so far, everything is working correctly with my file and folder redirection setup.
What I would like to be able to do is copy down all of the contents from the network redirected shares back to the local computer for a given user, is this possible? Or is it a one way street? I have followed the steps from numerous guides to reverse the file and folder redirection process but I am still unable to get this to work.
Here is an example of what the File and Folder Group Policy looks like. As I said this is working correctly.
I have set up a new policy which I am applying to the given OU to apply the local profile and folder redirection back to the PC. Here is what it looks like.
I'm getting the impression that this will help by pointing all the file and folder locations but I still have to manually copy the files housed on the network share back to the computer. Can somebody confirm? Is there a way to automatically get the copy working?
