    Folder re-direction - Solved

    Just to let anyone know if they are having problems with folder re-direction.

    In server 2008 R2, under roles > File services > share and storage. In here are the shares and if you right click onthe share, select properties you will see something in advanced settings called "Access-based enumeration".

    I have found that this has to be disabled so that users my documents can be re-directed.

    Just out of interest, what is Access-based enumeration?

    Access Based Enumeration is where only the folders that users have permission to view are shown on a share, rather than everything. As far as I can remember anyway. Strange that it was turned on for you though, thought it was something you had to enable.

    Access-based enumeration hides files and folders that users do not have permission to access.
