Hello, we're trying to redirect the AppData folder so our wonderful teachers can keep their own Office/IE settings etc

We've redirected it to create a folder for each user on our Home Drive Server \\VS1\Staff$\Apps\ it then adds the username and within that a folder called Application Data. Lovely.

When a user logs on to a machine, the folder is created and information is added, then it never updates again...none of the settings remain and we're back at square one.

I created a brand new user, which created its own folder with no issues and retains the settings made.

I've checked the users NTFS permissions and share permissions and they're both exactly the same.

Any ideas why a new user would be fine but an old one wouldn't?

Is there an easier way?!

Much Love,
Ben
