This one's doing my nut! Folder Redirects
I've been playing around with shares on the windows 2003 DC. Basically I wanted to hide the TeacherData share that contains all the Staff's profiles. To do this I renamed the share TeacherData$, therefore hiding the share. I knew it wouldn't be an issue because folder redirection isn't setup (although it once was)
Now, I've checked and double (triple) checked that I don't have folder redirection set up for staff. i.e a staff member's profile is not set to redirect for either my docs, app data, start menu, etc.
I've checked GPs also to see if there is a GP setup to redirect staff folders; but nothing.
So the problem came when I had a member of staff come upto me with her desktop missing, no access to My Documents, etc. It was as if her profile was been redirected to TeacherData (which it was) despite there been no obvious redirects setup.
I've changed TeacherData$ back to TeacherData and it has of course solved the issue, but it's doing my nut as to where the redirect is setup!
What the hell am I missing??
