    Folder redirection

    How is every one redirecting the desktops ?

    I have set the desktops in group policy to redirect which is fine ,

    The problem being .. %userprofile%/Desktop still redirects to the local user folder .

    Any solution to this ?

    I Think it is better to use the full path for desktops E.G: \\STUDENTSERVER\USERNAME$\Desktop.

    Defo use hidden shares for security reasons.

    Hope this helps.

    John this is how i have set it up .

    the problem is a lot of our scripts use %userprofile%/Desktop to deploy shortcuts .

    Didnt know if there was an easier way to redirect this path to a UNC path ?

    Oh right,

    In the script can you not use a SET

    SET USRPATH="\\UNC\JSD"

    I'm not sure if this will work, but it might be worth a try
