    Question

  • Hi,

    SBS2011 server name: Server
    Win2k12R2 server name: Artemis

    I am in the process of moving redirected folders from one server (SBS2011) to another (Win2k12R2 Server core) and am having difficulty with one users Documents folder.  The error I am getting is:

    Event Xml:

        <Data Name="ErrorDetails">This file is currently not available for use on this computer.

      </EventData>
    </Event>

    All the other folders have been redirected including Music, Pictures and Videos which follow documents!

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    According to my research, On each redirected network folder a recycle bin is created. This is independent of whether the location is configured to collect deleted items in a recycle bin or not. If you redirect "My Documents" Recycle Bin can become an issue. This can be turned off using the “move to Recycle Bin” feature using registry. The key is located at: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BitBucket\KnownFolder\{<The GUID of the Folder>} and set the NukeOnDelete value to 1.

    It will disable usage of RecycleBin for Redirected Folders.

    Please try to disable usage of RecycleBin for Documents folder and check if the issue persists.

    Some related threads for your reference:

    Recycle bins are created in Redirected folders to allow the user to restore files deleted on Network shares.
