    Hello

    I have a 2003 server and am trying to get a vista machine to do file redirection. I am using a policy with similar settings to your webcast. This policy is working for several XP machines. The vista machine is synchronizing the desktop but not the documents folder. Do you have any tips? This is the first Vista machine I have tried with folder redirection.

    Thank You

    I just listened to a reply of your Offline Files and Folder Redirection in Windows Vista Webcast, and have a question:

    I work for our Windows Server Administrator, and we’ve attempted to setup folder redirection for my new Vista Laptop, via GPOs.  We made some mistakes, and would like to completely backout, and try again.  The GPOs have been removed, and I’ve disabled offline files on my laptop.  But, after rebooting, my "documents" folder is still showing as being located on the remote server!  

    How can/do I cause it to revert to C:usersthuryddocuments?

    Thanks,

     Denny
