Updated: November 21, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 Foundation, Windows Server 2012 Essentials

You can perform this task if folder redirection is enabled on the Source Server.

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

  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 existing folder redirection group policy, and then click Delete.

  4. Read the warning, and then click Yes.

  5. Close Group Policy Management.

  1. On the Destination Server, open the Windows Server 2012 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.

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