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

Subject: [gptalk] Redirecting, myDocs, Desktop and App Data


I have a general question for the group. 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.
