This problem can occur when you use Group Policy to set up its Folder Redirection component. Group Policy has an option to set up the Folder Redirection component as Basic, Advanced, or None. On the Target tab, if you click the Basic setting, and then under Settings, you click to select the Grant the user exclusive rights to the folder name check box, the Folder Redirection component is unsuccessful and event messages can be displayed.


To resolve this problem:

  1. Load the appropriate Group Policy from the domain.
  2. Click User Configuration, click Windows Setting, and then click Folder Redirection.
  3. Right-click the appropriate Folder Redirection component, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Basic setting in the Target tab, and then under Settings, click to clear the Grant the user exclusive rights to the folder name check box.
  5. Save the settings, and then quit.
