    Question GP Folder Redirections

    Hi folks,

    I've inherited a 2008R2 domain, and there are a number of group policy folder redirections in place for staff and students.

    Understandable for Documents, Downloads, and Favorites, but it also includes AppData(Roaming).

    Is it generally a good idea to have AppData doing this? Some of the folders it's creating are very large (close to 2GB in some instances).

    TIA

    When I looked at it generally said to not roam app data.

    Presumably it just boils down to the application settings not roaming for the users?

    Having checked, for our 1,400 users it currently takes up 180GB on the file server.
