List members,

We have one Group policy defined within our network. All laptops and 
workstations are under this GP.

We started seeing issues with the Laptops and their "My Documents" directory.

In the GP, the " My Document" directory on all workstations is redirected to 
the users file area, exp: \\server\users\username

When the laptops are off the network and the laptop owner wishes to install or 
update something, it still points to the network share.

The simple answer is to remove the laptops from under that GP, but I would like 
to design it so the "My Documents" area is still pointing to the network share 
when they return to the network.

What's the best way to handle this?
