  • Windows 7 Redirection/roaming profile

    I donít know if this goes here or in the windows 7 section, but I was trying to redirect the documents folder on a windows 7 on 2003 domain, I figured how to do it manually by going into the users folder and right clicking on the folder I wanted to redirect, but what if I wanted to do it thru the 2003 policy will it work since theres more folders an are structured diffrently? Will also roaming profiles work in 2003 with windows 7?

    There is a group policy for redirecting folders built in in SBS 2003 - it is turned on by a wizard in the Users section of Server Manager. I am pretty sure it will work for Win7 also.
    WRT roaming profiles - IMHO they have never "worked". Thsy have always slowed down a login and dramatically increased Network Traffic to the annoyance of the users. Much better to redirect Documents, Favourites and Desktop as per above GPO - as I say, IMHO!
