    Folder Redirection - Deleted My Documents folder - Prevention/Cure

    Hi,

    Just trying to break the new network before it goes live.

    Found out that if you delete the my documents folder it wont recreate it again on next login.

    Trying to then save in my documents gives errors.

    Cant see a option in the GPO that says about recreating them.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers


    Update: Couldn't find a way 9of it automatically re-creating.

    Ran delprof2 on the system and re logged in and they all came back again.

    If you are redirecting everything separately, My Pictures, My Videos, etc.. vs just redirecting My Documents, I know that you have to be very careful with the redirection in terms of if you include the "/" or not at the end of the path. That can prevent the auto re-creation.
