Folder Redirection Problem
I'm trying to set up my documents folder redirection for staff. Everything is set up, the users folders are created and the permissons are set etc... However I keep getting the following error in event viewer :
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Folder Redirection
Event Category: None
Event ID: 112
Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The files for the redirected folder could not be moved to the new location. The folder is configured to be redirected to <\\dc01\Staff\%username%>. Files were being moved from <C:\Documents and Settings\dwilson.ACADEMIC\My Documents> to <\\dc01\Staff\Dwilson>. The following error occurred while copying <C:\Documents and Settings\dwilson.ACADEMIC\My Documents\desktop.ini> to <\\dc01\Staff\Dwilson\desktop.ini>:
The security descriptor structure is invalid.

I've reached the point where I can't see the wood for the trees with this problem
If anyone has any suggestions or advice, it is more than welcome
Thanks in advance,

uncheck "grant user exclusive rights"

...and if that doesn't work, try changing their access rights on their home folder from "modify" to "full control". It fixed a similar problem for us many moons ago, although I can't remember the exact error message (it's before we logged calls)

@Plexer: Tried that and makes no difference
@sahmeepee: Staff already have full access to their home dirs.
I think it might be a permission issue on the local PC
My Head hurts now

Whats the ownership of all files in their directory?

Did you want the My Documents folder copied from the local machine to the server?
Have you tried unchecking the 'Move the contents of My Documents to the new location' ?

Is sounds like a share permissions issue, not an NTFS permissions issue.
I assume each user's home directory is shared?
Make sure that the SHARE permissions are Allow: 'Change', 'Read' AND 'Full Control'.
You shouldn't need to, but I always put the full path to the My Documents folder:
Hope this helps

I'm having the same issue, but only on one particular computer model.
The only difference between this one (Lenovo X61 Tablet) and every other pc we're using is that we had to use the factory configuration for the tablet. We couldn't get the hardware to work after reinstalling XP w/SP2 from scratch, so we needed the factory defaults. They even have it setup by default to override your home page with theirs (boo!), but we've gotten around their branding by using their app Access Connections to override their first override. Get it?
I absolutely cannot put my finger on it, but I'm assuming that's due to lack of knowledge on any local processes that manage folder redirection.
What can I check on the local pc that might indicate why folder redirection is being blocked? Share permissions are set just fine (works perfectly from any other computer on the domain with any username) and the "gpresult /v" says that all aspects of the policy are being applied EXCEPT the folder redirection!
