    Disable write access to personal folder (root location of user area)


    Hi all,

    Im not sure if anyone else has had this problem or noticed it, but I have enabled the GPO prevent users from adding files to the root of thier users files folder on our network as we use folder re-directs to my documents which in theory should keep everything tidy. This works up until a point, if I try and browse to the location and create a file I cant. If I try and drag a file into that location I cant, but as soon as I try to save as it lets me - any ideas why this would be?

    It only affects Windows Explorer not applications using the win32 file APIs. Which is why it resides within the "Windows Explorer" group policy tree.

    Ah ok thanks - you wouldnt happen to know if a redirect is possible for all applications, maybe by a reg key?
