My Docs and Desktop Settings Redirection Policy

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.group_policy (More info?)

Hi,

We are currently using the 'My Docs' and 'Desktop'
redirection policy to send user data to a file server.
The server is running low on drive space, and I would like
to change the path in the policy to point to another
server. Is that all I have to do? Is there a best
practice for doing this? Finally, once the path is
changed, will the data remain on the original server, and
also appear on the new server.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Ed

    Hello,

    If you just want to change the location of the user data then yes, all you
    need to do is change the path in the policy. Make sure to refresh the
    policy for the change to take affect the next time the user logs on. This
    will not move the data that will have to be manually moved unless these are
    DFS shares. Only new data will appear in the share.
