Folder Redirection - 2000 Server

By Robotech ·
Based on my boss's request, I decided to enable this feature on our Windows 2000 Server. I have been testing it but I can't seem to get the folders on my XP Pro laptop to redirect. What am I doing wrong?

Redirection needed?

by daneke In reply to Folder Redirection - 2000 ...

Redirection of laptop folders to a network share would make the folder not available when the laptop is off the network. Could you be wanting to use Offline Folders which would synchronize upon reconnect with the network?

Yes, redirection needed.

It finally worked. Apparently the system needed time to activate the redirection. Redirection is being used because if someone's PC fails they can just log on to the domain via another PC and have access to their files.
