Applies To: Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials

If folder redirection is enabled on the Source Server, you can enable folder redirection on the Destination Server, and then delete the old Folder Redirection Group Policy setting.

First, use the Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Dashboard to enable folder redirection on the Destination Server. Then, delete the old Folder Redirection Group Policy setting.

  1. On the Destination Server, open the Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials Dashboard.

  2. In the navigation bar, click DEVICES.

  3. In the Devices Tasks pane, click Implement Group Policy.

  4. On the Enable Folder Redirection Group Policy page, select the folders to be redirected, and then click Next.

  5. On the Enable Security Policy Settings page, click Finish.

  1. On the Destination Server, open the Group Policy Management administrative tool.

  2. In Group Policy Management, expand Forest:YourNetworkDomainName, expand Domains, expand YourNetworkDomainName, and then expand Group Policy Objects.

  3. Right-click the policy that you want to delete, and then click Delete.

  4. Read the warning, and then click Yes.

  5. Close Group Policy Management.

To apply the change for the folder redirection, network users must log off their computers, and then log back on. This ensures the transfer of all redirected folders to the Destination Server.
