  • Is it possible to combine folder redirection and roaming profiles?

    We have users that log onto various systems, so we initially configured roaming profiles; however, some profiles are very large and take considerable time to load. I was wondering about the feasibility of configuring folder redirection within the group policy and then using roaming profiles for the other profile information (especially for desktop background, icon placement, and the like). It seems to me that if the My Documents, Music, and Video folders remained on the server, there would never be much data to sync up.

    We have some people that need to have absolutely everything to look identical no matter what station they log into. I've wondered if the icons in the All Users desktop would show up as people move around, and if this is the case, is there a way around this?

    Thank you.

    Yes it is possible and this is one of the recommended ways of dealing with large roaming profiles.

      There's a GPO setting to disable the display of start menu and desktop items from the All Users profile.
