Applies to: Windows 10, version 2004, all editionsWindows 10, version 1909, all editionsWindows 10, version 1809, all editions


Computers running Windows 8 and later versions may not apply Folder Redirection Group Policy objects (GPOs) as expected. This issue can occur if the computers are domain clients and are managed by Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (ConfigMgr 2012 SP1) or later. 


To work around this issue, disable the Enable User Data and Profiles device setting in the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager console.
