Symptoms:

How to move/copy data from folder redirected location to ProfileDisk (VHD or VMDK)

 

Possible Resolution(s):


Go to ProfileUnity Console, Edit configuration, go to "Folder Redirection" then Add 2 new folder redirection rules:

 

New Folder Redirection Rule 1

Shell Folder: Application Data

Unselect: "Only Redirect Local Shell Folders"

Redirect to Path: C:\Users\ProfileDisk\%username%\AppData\Roaming

Note: "C:\Users\ProfileDisk" is the "mount" path of your ProfileDisk (check ProfileDisk configuration)

Note: To stay with default registry location %systemdrive% translates to "C" please use appropriate drive letter representing your default system setting.

Existing Files:

Option A) Copy to new location

Option B) Move to new location (This will remove all files from your redirected AppData location)

Select: Only Migrate Existing FIles on Primary Client

 

New Folder Redirection Rule 2

Shell Folder: Local Application Data

Unselect: "Only Redirect Local Shell Folders"

Redirect to Path: C:\Users\ProfileDisk\%username%\AppData\Local

Note: "C:\Users\ProfileDisk" is the "mount" path of your ProfileDisk (check ProfileDisk configuration)

Note: To stay with default registry location %systemdrive% translates to "C" please use appropriate drive letter representing your default system setting.

Existing Files:

Option A) Copy to new location

Option B) Move to new location (This will remove all files from your redirected AppData location)

Select: Only Migrate Existing FIles on Primary Client
