When setting redirection policy for a group, use the path to the share, such as \\server\share. Folder Redirection then appends the user name and the folder name when the policy is applied Another element to consider is your user account: is the user account in the same domain? What has been configured in the user account?

If not, you have to make sure users have the ability to create a folders there. Make sure you check both NTFS and share permissions.

However, this does not work. What I have configured is user configuration/ windows settings/ folder redirection/ my documents/ setting: Basic (redirect everyone's folder to the same location) path:\\servername\share$\%username% Under user configuration/ windows settings/ folder redirection/ options grant user exclusive rights to my documents - enabled move the contents of my documents to the new location - enabled policy removal behavior - leave contents. I do not know why this is not working. The GP has been applied successfully but the path in the my document folder does not work.
