Folder Redirection - Home Folder files not visable


  • Hi,

    I have encountered a strange issue with folder redirection. I have folder redirection enabled to redirect to the users Home Folder.  The home folder is then mapped to drive letter H:\ using a logon script (specified in the ADUC User Profile tab)

    A small number of users have reported that when then login to their machines and open their Home Folder (H:\) the only thing they can see is their Redirected Folders.  All other files and folders have disappeared.  I checked on the file server and their files are still present (not deleted).  If the users navigate to the Full UNC path of their Home Folder they can see all the files again.  This issue is intermitting, some days worse than others.

    Any insight would be appreciated.
