Subject: [gptalk] Folder redirection



I have a GP in place to move the my documents folder to a folder specifed.

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)


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.
