    Windows 7 Document redirection

    I am struggling to get folder redirection to work in windows 7.

    When I click on 'document' I get the following error:

    This operation has been cancelled due to the restrictions in effect on this computer. please contact your system administrator..

    when I look in the event log, I get the following:

    Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Documents" to "\\svr\username$\".
    Redirection options=0x80001210.
    The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "\\svr\username$"".
    Error details: "This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.
    ".

    it appears that it is trying to create the documents folder in the users share...
    the user has full permisions on their share.

    any ideas?
    thanks

    The user needs to be the NTFS owner of the folder as well as have full rights to it in order for redirection to work properly. This sounds like what it is complaining about.

    Agree with Synack. Although there are some very good Microsoft guides on this topic, here is a step by step guide which may help you - Configuring Folder Redirection in Windows Server 2008
