    Is the Domain Admin the owner of your redirected icon share?

    You could try the setting below, something along the lines of: Replace owner on subcontainers...

    And I presume the Sharing and Security tabs are correct on the share?

    Yup, like i say I had it working before I started applying different policys.
    So im guessing theres a policy somewhere Ive enabled that i probably shouldnt have. Just need to find the FcK3R

    Don't forget this stuff doesn't quite work properly in W7sp1.

    Try installing all the hotfixes listed here:
    How to make windows 7 actually work properly... part 1.

    Then read (if you haven't already):
    How the synchronization in Windows 7 Offline Files works - Romania Networking Team Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs
    Not sure it is directly relevant, but it useful in otherways.

    Even if they don't solve your problem, it will almost certainly help you avoid others later on. Notice that at least two MS Support professional blogs are recommending these hotfixes regardless of whether problems presented match specific symptoms reported by individuals.

    (read the standard warnings from MS about installing these hotfixes, and proceed at your own risk)

    thanks - Installed all the hotfixes but it hasnt changed anything.

    Ive figured out that instead of picking up the folder redirection, its reverting to the desktop from the mandatory profile.

    Hello all,

    I too am experiencing this, but I may be able to add some specifics about what is happening.
    We are entirely a 2008 R2 enterprise site with all windows 7 clients.
    Staff NEVER get this issue - but students do - always at random - no specific machine, no specific user.
    The only difference that I can see is that staff sync their documents to be able to use them offline where as students don't.
    The other thing is that if we re-image an affected machine it resolves the problem.
    Generally this happens on laptops over wireless, but is starting to happen on desktop machines more frequently.

    We have also gone down the route of waiting for network at startup and deleting all profiles older than 1 day with no avail.
    This problem does worsen over a period of time so does suggest some kind of profile / registry issue. Perhaps deleting the profile doesn't delete the associated registry key?
    I also don't think it's a permissions issue - it would either work or it wouldn't if that was the case!

    The trawl through the forums continues!!!!

    I *THINK* ive solved my issue.
    There are a few policys ive looked at again and it has seemed to resolve it.

    Firstly, I've 'Not Configured' all the offline files settings.
    Secondly, ive 'Not Configured' the 'Remove user's folder from the start menu policy

    This seems to have fixed it for now...

    I had a User Profile problem. the user GPO wouldn't load every time so settings was not being applyed. this was all random anyways it may help it may not but when i checked my event log it told me gpo wasn't applyed because of a possable dns problem.

    read this post and turn it off and see if it sorts any of your problems out.
    support.microsoft.com/kb/832223

    For Windows Server 2008 R2
    DNSCMD is installed by default on Windows Server 2008 R2 DNS Servers. At a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    dnscmd /config /enableednsprobes 0

    Note Type a 0 (zero) and not the letter "O" after "enableednsprobes" in this command.

    This worked for my problems with windows 7 and more little ones around the network
