Folders cannot be added to libraries due to group policy setting RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of our Windows 7 users (Enterprise x64) cannot add most folders on the local drive to a library. When he tries, he gets an error message saying (own translation): "The folder cannot be included due to a group policy setting."

    However, there is no GPO related to libraries. Strange enough, it works for some folders, but I couldn't find a difference between the folders that work and those that do not. The user and computer are in the same OUs as all other users and computers (where it works fine). However, most of our Windows 7 computers use the 32 bit version.

    I couldn't find any information from the logs or from the web that would help me find out the responsible "group policy setting".
