Folder Redirection


  • This may sound stupid :/

    On my school network my folder redirection is //SERVER/%USERNAME% but cannot get Group Policy to allow this on my own server as it has to be //SERVER/SHARE... how would I set it up so my folder redirection goes to root of Network share ie. //Server/ksayer instead of //server/users/ksayer would I need a Network attached storage?

    Sorry sounds really confusing but im not a full IT pro yet (y)

  • Hi Kylesayer,

    Generally, you can redirect folders to any of the following locations:

    1:The root of a network file share

    2:A folder on a network share

    3:A local folder

    4:A home directory (only applicable if you have existing home directories in your environment)

    You can check the below link for more details and feel free to post back if you have further questions:

    Hope It helps.

    Best Regards,
