Redirected Recent Items/Recent Places issue. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Hope someone can help me. I have a very strange issue going on here

    We have redirected profiles to a server location and recent documents/places enabled. The recent document info is stored in %username%\roaming\Microsoft\windows\recent items

    When I log onto computer 1 the list is empty, so I start looking at documents etc. The documents and folders appear fine in their relevant lists.

    When I log onto a computer 2 and look at the recent documents/places they are empty. If I start looking around the list starts to populate.

    If I now return to computer 1 it still only has the documents and places I looked at on that machine. So you would think its saving it locally. However if I right click and look at the properties of recent items its definitely pointing to the user profile area on the server and so is computer 2. Also if I right click the recent items and click send to zip. It creates a zip file on the desktop. If I look in the zip file it contains both the information from 1 and 2. So they are both looking at the right location yet they will only see their own data !! ? Anyone like to enlighten me to what might be going on and how it maybe resolved?

    Thanks

    Do you mean that the file in folder recent items won’t appear in other computer?
