USMT 4 and Redirected Folders - MDT RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to confirm if Redirected Folders (Documents, Music, etc) will be backed up via USMT and restored on the users computer. The whole idea is to ensure that the remote sites with poor connectivity do not have to pull all documents from the WAN that are already stored in cache on their computer. When the user logs into their Win7 machine that is refreshed, I expect that the Redirection/Offline files GPO will reconcile and make sure all the contents on the server are up to date with what's stored on the refreshed computer.

    For this to work do I need to add the registry key that is referenced in this KB?

  • Just to follow up on this, if you do not apply the registry modification referenced in this article:, and you are doing migration redirected "My Documents" via USMT, you will get duplicate files when done with the refresh process.
