Folder redirection issue under Win XP SP3 RC?
We upgraded one of our IT suites to the XP SP3 RC1 over the christmas break to see what effect (if any) there would be. We'd deployed onto a couple of test stations in IT first and they'd gone fine - so a single suite that could be re-RIS'd quickly if it went bad was the next logical stage.
And all appears to have gone well - apart from we are now starting to see students coming to us having lost work they thought they had saved.
We thought at first that this was a student thing. "I can't be arsed to work, so I will claim the file has gone" - I'm sure every school tech sees that at least once a week - but we're seeing too many students for this to be the case.
Having examined a test station in IT with SP3 installed, and one without (both in the same OU so same GP applied and the same user used) it seems that under SP3 folder redirection for the "My Documents" folder to the users H: drive doesn't work. On the SP2 machine it works fine.
The users H: drive is mapped as usual, and desktop shortcuts created so the logon batches are running OK, just the redirection of "My Documents" to the users H: drive doesn't seem to want to work.
Anybody else come across this? Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
