Can customize what to redirect under Folder Redirection?

Sometime, we really think too much when we read the words – folder redirection under the GPO.

Or maybe just me. πŸ™‚

Share with you all something that I was working on recently using GPO for Windows 7. I have a project asking me to provide a solution to end user for backing up a portion of data. And the requirement is that the data must be available to the end user even when there is no network.

My first though will be using of folder redirection through GPO especially the environment is Win 7 and Win Server 2008.

So, through GPO, we can turn on the redirection of Documents and other profile related directories.

In order to make the redirected folder to be available, we can turn on Offline File through GPO and the advance setting under Sharing from the Wintel File Servers.

However… from the feedback is that the end users has been using the Document heavily. So, if we were to redirect the Document folder, there will be a surge in file storage and file transfer over the network.

So, new requirement is to provide a customize folder for the user to dump a certain amount of file into it.

So, what will you do? πŸ™‚

I will leave this open first and let you all think about the solution. I will share with you all what I do.
