we have the home dir mapped to the W drive but i too understand what you said
but i was not the one who setup the AD environment... it was like this when i
my boss setup folder redirection at the domain level GPO ie ... the default
domain policy... It should have been done via the OU level and if updates
don't occur right away you can always remote regedit via a vb script or dos
console to edit the proper paths which is clear OR "gpupdate.exe /Force /Boot"
there are many options that i have presented to him but he is just making
what can i do he signs my paycheck ....
But i am thankfull for your prompt help and advice....
Have a good one...
