As I mentioned in today’s lecture one of the ways Windows domains allow users to make their Desktop and My Documents folders accessible to them from any machine in the domain, is to use roaming profiles. Roaming profiles are relatively easy to configure but have been known to be rather buggy. Also, roaming profiles eat up bandwidth on your network and slow the start up of the OS. Many network administrators now use folder redirection to handle this problem and skip the roaming profile configuration. Folder redirection doesn’t need to down/up load data and increases performance during startup greatly. Check out this video to implement folder redirection.
