Server 2008 R2 Terminal Services Configuration/Folder Redirection


  • Hi,

    I am looking to make changes to a terminal server and looking for the best ways to deploy folder redirection.

    Currently I have the following issue:

    A group policy has been configured to prevent access to the C Drive as we don't want users to save data to the terminal server.

    This then block access to the default folders such as documents, favorites etc.

    If a user then tries to create a new folder in Favorites in IE or move an existing website to a new folder access is denied because of the GPO set.

    The users are set with a TS profile where the data is copied when they log off.

    Can anyone advise jow I would get around the issue to ensure the following:

    1. Access to the C drive is still restricted

    2. Users can create folders in IE and move websites to them

  • Hi,

    If you are using the Roaming profile+folder redirection,users can create folders in IE and move websites to them.

  • Hi,

    Folder Redirection is turned on but not applying for some reason.

    When logged i and then attempting to access a folder such as Favorites, Downloads etc the following message is displayed:

    The Operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer. Please contact the System Administrator

    Any ideas what may be causing this issue?
