Hi all,

Here is our setup

VMware Horizon 7.4 VDI environment
Windows 10 linked clone pool (Win 10 LTSB 2016 installer)
VMware's Persona Management for folder redirection and roaming profile
DefProf v1.11

We use VMware's Persona Management folder redirection for the "Desktop" and "Documents" folders and use VMware's roaming profiles for the user's Windows profile. Everything works fine with Desktop folder redirection but when you log out of your Horizon session the Documents folder lands in the roaming profile folder and not the redirected Documents folder. When you log in a second time the Documents folder is not accessible and when you log out a second time the data in the Roaming Documents folder moves to the redirected Documents folder on the Persona Management server.

We've tried this without using Defprof and the Documents folder works 'better', the second time you log in the Documents folder works under the "ThisPC" area but it is still broken under the "Quick Access" section of File Explorer... we are considering a Group Policy to try and just remove the "Quick Access" area.

Any thoughts on this?
