My Docs redirection
Just built my 1st 2008 Server having built quite a few 2000/2003 but things are slightly different and in ffrernt places. I have redirections on the home folders \\curricsvr\home\%username% and when testing on PC all works fine and maps drive etc (also for desktop redirection) However when I click on my documents icon in XP I get navigated to C:\documents and settings\....etc etc.....
I cannot for the life of me find the policy that changes it so points to mapped drive...any help would be great also any tips on what policies to put in place for pupils in a primary school. Eg... disable control panel, run command etc

Isn't it the option under User Configuration > Windows Settings > Folder Redirection > Documents
Right Click on Properties > "Basic - Redirect Everyone's Folder to the same location" >
Under "Target Folder Location" < Select - Redirect to the users home directory

I read the original enquiry as successfully redirecting the location of My Documents, just having a problem with the shortcut that pops up in applications [File/Save As/Save In/My Documents] When this link is clicked it takes his user to the wrong location. I think that what I have suggested may fix this for him.

That option did not fix my requirement as all this done was directed my documents to the root of the share and when I applied and clicked on my docs it showed everything inside of this folder ie pupils and staff. I have somehow managed to resolve by adding restict C: drive only and it now only shows the users home drive H:\ mapped) when I click on my documents and not C:\docs etc..
