If user folder redirection policies have been used within a domain, the specific registry keys altered are located under the following key:
Folder redirection is usually put in place for items such as Desktop, My Documents (picture, music etc) and perhaps things such as app data and start menu customisations just to name a few. If a system is moved from one domain to another, or the user folder redirection GPO is altered you may come across an issue where the registry keys aren’t correctly reset on the client machine and hence the system tries to redirect the user to a non-existent share.
This behaviour can be easy fixed by altering the registry key strings (as listed above). As the settings are located within the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive, this does need to be altered under the account in question. This can either be accomplished manually or via a user logon script, such as below:
REG DELETE “HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerShell Folders” /v Desktop
REG ADD “HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerShell Folders” /v Desktop /t REG_SZ /d C:NEW_LOCATION
