The Computer Management service team plans to decommission Folder Redirection and Roaming Profiles on OIT Windows computers effective 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30. Approximately 50% of PCs used by OIT staff will be impacted by this change and those employees have been contacted directly.
This change is a first step in moving OIT data to Enterprise Network Attached Storage. Briefly, Folder Redirection redirects the path of a local computer folder to a share location, automatically backing up your computer data. Roaming Profiles backs up your computer settings so that you can receive the same background and settings on multiple computers.
