If you implement Offline files/folders correctly, the desktop should never disappear.

I am still slowly going over the implemented GPs that the agency that I work for now has implemented. They started to redirect Mydocs to a network share for everyone based on their department which appears to work fine. I occasionally see an event log error about it not working as I go through workstations. But thats not the current issue. I am trying to get user profiles down in size. Some people (and I am guilty sometimes). Store stuff on their desktop which bloats that up. Also, App Data can also become big. So to try and streamline the User profiles for quicker log ins, etc. I started to look at redirecting the Desktop. I set up a GP for myself (only person in my own Testing OU). It appears to work for the most part. The post/thread about the wallpaper made me think of this. I have had times where it appears that my machines looses its network connection (or so it appears) and all of the sudden my desktop "disappears" and the icons leave except normally for the main few (my computer, network connections, etc). I know that I need to figure out why the network connection dies, but besides that is there anything else that I should be looking at. Maybe something I did wrong with the GP. I am afraid to try and toss this out for the Agency and have desktops start disappearing..... Thanks for any comments you can give.
