  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    About folder redirection policy failed, please follow the steps below to collect the log information.

    1. Logon to the client machine,
    2. Enable folder redirection logging by the following:
    Value Path: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics
    Value Name: FdeployDebugLevel
    Value Type: REG_DWORD
    Value Data: F (hex)
    3. Output file is created under %systemroot%\debug\usermode\fdeploy.log

    Best Regards,


    Just do it.
