GPO User Folder Redirection -Win 7 - Duplicate Folders?
Firstly apologies if this is in the wrong forum and/or has been mentioned before. I couldn't find it anywhere else when I searched.
Now then, we're currently in the process of setting up a completely new network so we can scrap our old out of date one and do things 'properly'. We are basically almost there with it and are down to the last few policies. One of them is to redirect the user folders to the network share. We've set up the network mapping (currently set to U:) which works fine and goes straight to the My Documents folder for the user on the network, however the 'User Documents' you access through the Windows 7 start menu by clicking on the username is behaving very strangely.
For some reason when we have redirected the folders it has kept a link to the local profile copy also. For example 'My Documents' is set to redirect to the user home directory which works but there is also a second 'My Documents' folder also. We've denied access to the extra folders so users can't save there anyway but it's obviously going to cause confusion having duplicate folders.
Even weirder is the 'My Pictures' and 'My Video' folders which are set to follow the documents setting for redirect are duplicated but instead just say 'Videos' and 'Pictures'.
We thought of running a script at start up to delete the duplicates but this is only masking the issue, not solving it and also is obviously adding extra processing to log on (though minimal, as I said we are wanting to get things right from the start not start off with quick fixes)
Any ideas would be appreciated.
