SBS 2008 treats folder redirection on a per user basis, instead of a per network basis like 2003 did. What this means is that out of the box, the folder redirection policy applies to an empty security group (Windows SBS Folder Redirection Accounts). This means that any user added to this group will get their folders redirected to the server for data protection purposes.
You can either add users directly to the security group, or use the handy UI on the Users’ Tab called Redirect folders for user accounts to the server.
By simply clicking on the User Accounts folder, you can choose which users have their folders redirected. Additionally, as you can see above, you can choose what you want redirected. We do not redirect the Start Menu by default, because if a client moves to a new PC, and that new PC doesn’t have the applications installed, the start menu is full of unknown icons. Ugly!
