Symptoms

Computers running Windows 8 and later versions may not apply Folder Redirection Group Policy objects (GPOs) as expected. This issue can occur if the computers are domain clients and are managed by System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (ConfigMgr 2012 SP1) or later.

Resolution

To work around this issue, disable the Enable User Data and Profiles device setting in the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager console.
