Luckily, Microsoft has provided a simple and easy way to do this on the domain or OU level. This tutorial will focus on enabling redirection and verifying that it is correctly applied. The first thing you want to do is to use Server Manager to access the Group Policy Management console in an account that has permission to edit Group Policy. You will be prompted for a name and whether or not you want to use an existing template for your new Group Policy.
I named mine Folder Redirect. After you choose a name, the Group Policy Editor opens. Notice that you can choose from any of the folders that are are default folders for user accounts.
Right click on the folder, and select Properties. At the Properties tab, select the type of redirection and the path to the new folder. Here, we are doing a basic redirection, which will redirect all user Pictures folders to the same location. The folder we are sending it to is the PicturesRedirect folder on the file server ScottFile. Your file path is going to use the format: Note the file path and the example for the individual user.
Apply these changes and you will receive a message informing you that not all folder redirection features are available in previous versions of Windows Server. Make note of this and click Yes.
Some features of folder redirection are not backwards-compatible. Now, your new Group Policy should be active, but to make sure that your computer applies these settings, force an update with the command line command: Choose Yes and wait for the system to sign you out.
Once you sign back in, you will need to test your redirection. Go to the folder you are redirecting and create a new text file. In the example below, notice that the text file appears in the PicturesRedirect folder that you assigned it to.
Note the file path and the redirected file. Also, make sure that the folder you are redirecting it to actually exists. You can find their article on the subject at the link— Folder Redirection.
