    Folder Redirection - Links

    Could you take a look at your UserConfig > Policies > Folder Redirection > Links and tell me what you have that set to. I want to get this so that it is per user and follows them around the network, but I can't work out how I need to configure that...

    We have that set to 'Not Configured'

    The only settings we have [for our students and staff] are:

    Desktop redirection.
    Start Menu redirection.

    HTH.

    Thanks DaveP. Where does it point to if set to "Not Configured"?

    If you only have Start Menu and Desktop redirected, that presumably means all the other areas are local, whereas we have Documents, Music, Video and Favorites configured, pointing to their networked MyDocs folder.

    My understanding is that if any of these settings are 'Not Configured' it follows the MyDocuments settings.

    These are not configured on our network. When a student wants to save a video project [in Movie Maker] it automatically selects MyDocuments/MyVideos as the first location offered.

    Thanks, in that case I'll give it a try setting it "Not Configured" and see what happens...

    Basic - Redirect to the following location:

    Code:
    \\Servername.domain.domain\%Username%$\Links

    We have the same as Michael

    Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location

    Code:
    \\Server\profiles\%username%\Links
    Each user has individual links redirected, If you wanted everyone to have the same links, just add the location such as
    Code:
    \\Server\policies\links

    Would that automatically create that folder, since it doesn't currently exist for anyone?
