Undoing appdata redirection
For a few years we've had the appdata folder from our users roaming profiles redirected to another share on the server using GPO, however recently I've noticed a few issues that I think maybe related to this:
We've just updated to Acrobat Reader 9, and we often get Visual C++ Runtime error when people try and open pdfs. After a bit of googling it appears that this is related to the appdata folder not being local and is an issue that Adobe aren't planning to fix, due to them not supporting folder redirection (I'm paraphrasing from the results I found).
Some of our wireless clients have Word hanging randomly, and only when logged on with a user that has their appdata redirected.
So, I'm considering pulling this setting back and just having the appdata folder pulled down at logon as with the rest of the profile. I'd imagine that this isn't going to be as straight forward as just unticking the box, as that will I guess have repercussions on users that already have the appdata stored somewhere else? Do I need to recreate everyone's profile (aargh!), or maybe robocopy the appdata folders from the share back to the users profile and then reset the setting?
Hope someone can help.
