Configure special folder redirection

Jul 22, 2014

With Special Folder Redirection configured, users can map Windows special folders for the server to those on their local computers. Special folders refer to standard Windows folders, such as \Documents and \Desktop, which are always presented in the same way regardless of the operating system.

Configure special folder redirection using PowerShell.

Note: The StoreFront and PowerShell consoles cannot be open at the same time. Always close the StoreFront admin console before using the PowerShell console to administer your StoreFront configuration. Likewise, close all instances of PowerShell before opening the StoreFront console.
