Howto migrate Work Folders server?


  • Hi,

    I have some servers running 2012 R2 with active Work Folders feature. They will be replaced by 2016 machines. Is there some howto regarding the migration of Work Folders feature?

    The sync shares are created with file access only for the users itself. Work folders URL is distributed by GPO to the clients and setup is enforced. Clients are Windows 10 1709 and 1803. 

    Before Windows 10 1803 the clients had all the data and changing the sync share was easy. Clients were just resynchronizing their files to the new, empty share. Now with the new features, most files stay on the sync share server and only a few files are offline available. 

    So how do I handle this? 

    Thanks, Ingo
