    folder redirection and permissions troubleshooting

    Hi,

    I've got an issue with folder redirection not working.

    Looking in the logs in eventvwr.msc I can see the error is
    Code:
    failed to apply policy and redirect folder 
    can not create folder
    access is denied
    This is odd as the folder does exit on the server.

    Looking at the share on the server I can see the share permissions are full control for everyone
    and the ntfs permissions are full control for staff group

    Also when logged on as a staff member if I try to access the hidden share via \\server\share$ I get
    Code:
    You do not have permission to access \\server\share$
    which makes me think there is some fundamental permissions problem rather
    than a group policy issue with folder redirection.

    Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this further or is there something obvious I
    am missing?

    Thanks

    Forgot to update this. Looks like was a windows bug. Turned off offline files and all ok again

    Yeah offline files / syncing does not play nice with folder redirection at all. It caused me a few headaches before I disabled it.
