Folder Redirection offline files not working on Windows 10 Client


  • The offline files cache for redirected folders does not work on Windows 10 clients.


    • Windows Server 2012 R2 domain controller, applying folder redirection GPO
    • User folders (e.g. documents, desktop etc) redirected to Hyper-V clustered file share with offline cache option enabled (\\\redirectedfolders\username)
    • Mixture of Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 clients


    • Folder redirection works on all clients, users can access all their files providing the client remains connected to the network
    • Offline cache works on all clients except for Windows 10. Therefore Windows 10 clients lose access to redirected folders when disconnected from the network.
    • No sync partnership appears in the Sync Centre in Control Panel under Windows 10

    I have searched through Microsoft documentation, forums and on Google but not managed to find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this issue is preventing us from rolling out further Windows 10 clients.
