I'm implementing folder redirection for a domain, and I'm trying to make this as seamless as possible for current users. I assumed the %USERNAME% subfolders would remain in the same place but point to the redirected folders... but instead, they were essentially moved from the local location to the server without leaving any links behind to reach them. My users would have to access their redirected folders through a share or mapped drive.
Is there a setting I missed in Group Policy when doing this, or do I have to manually create links to the new folder locations for each user?
EDIT: Before I applied the folder redirection, the Users/%USERNAME% folder looked like this:
And now those subfolders aren't there.
The Library folders are as they were and link to the redirected locations, but they don't contain all the files that the %USERNAME% folder does. I don't want my users to not be able to find their documents.
I should also mention that this is the first time I've implemented folder redirection. So, is this just what happens, or is there a way to preserve the way it appeared before but with links to the proper redirected folder locations?
