Re: Start Menu Folder Redirection
Under the GP that you're deploying, there should be several different
options.... What Vista will usually do with redirected folders is move the
current contents of that folder to the new location so the change will be
seamless to the user. Check the Settings tab on that Group Policy, and
there should be options to control whether Windows attempts to move things
there and change security settings on that location.
