I believe I'm in further need of clarification as well Andrew. BTW...to resolve 
my My Doc redirection issue, I did the following:
I changed the "Target Folder Location" setting to 'Redirect to the following 
location' and placed in the proper path (i.e. 
\\servername\users\%username%<file:///\\servername\users\%25username%25>). I 
then closed out of the setting, refreshed the GPO, then went back into it and 
noticed the Target Location was changed to 'Create a folder for each user under 
the root path' automatically, with the path setting retaining what I placed in 
it earlier. A little quirky, but if it works. :)

Thanks all for a great list!

Hi Darren,

As I'm new to GP I'm intrigued by the purpose of this tool when you state 
"quickly spot inconsistencies across GPOs"

Could you give an example of when you'd want to compare GPO's for 
inconsistencies? I thought the concept of multiple GPO's was to be different, 
with each one providing a different type of policy, that you can apply to 
different groups of individuals/assets depending on the needs.

Immediately the only time I can think you'd want to compare GPO's for 
inconsistencies is when you are recreating one due to corruption or major 
version change, or if you're looking for conflicting GPO's which set opposite 
values for the same policy.



P.S. Sorry if you excitedly opened this email expecting your first batch of 
feedback ;)

Hey Folks-
Just wanted to let everyone know that today we shipped our new GPO Compare 
 This is something that many folks have asked for-a really nice standalone way 
to quickly spot inconsistencies across GPOs. If you have interest, check it out 
and let me know what you think! I'm all ears for feedback and already have some 
great ideas for the next version.
