    If users need to use more than one computer to work with their data and synchronize settings between multiple computers. It is recommended to use Roaming Profiles and Folder Redirection. they can be used together to create a seamless user experience from one computer to another.

  • Hello!

    Eve is pointing you to the right solution, but make sure this is really a problem.  Folder redirection works without hiccups, but roaming profiles can generate a lot of network traffic and sometimes causes things to go bump in the night.  Use roaming profiles with caution and only if absolutely necessary for business operations, not just a convenience for staff.
