    Hi, I know this is over a year old, but I have used it and it seems to be working except fo the fact that when i logon to a workstation as a user and create a document and save it to my documents, it disappears from the user’s view, but if i check on the server, the file is there in the users profile.v2\documents folder.

    I am looking for some help and it would be greatly appreciated :)

    Actually, it was an issue I had with permissions, after checking the event view application log, i was able to see that the folder redirection was not taking place and further investigation showed it was permissions…

    Wanted to let you know I have been racking my brain attempting to get this to work. Experienced error 1504 & 1509, this is the first place that addressed the OS level at both ends. After reading this, performing it in a test environment it all worked. Now I am rolling it out, the step that is lost everywhere else is working on the server permissions along with file services. Thanks for putting this down for all to use.

    Why do you need to enable “Do not check for user ownership of roaming profiles folders” setting?

    As I found in different blog (http://helgeklein.com/blog/2011/12/how-to-configure-a-file-server-for-hosting-user-profiles/); it is better to disable it?

    What is best practice when it comes to defining the UNC path for the profile? A. apply by GPO or B. by AD user profile properties?

    about roaming profile cleaning, you can try this free software . I tried it on my network and its works fine on all windows versions (also 2012R2)

    I do not understand why you would check: Leave the folder in the new location when the policy is removed. If you do this, you would leave the local computer without its complete profile.
