Using Terminal Server Windows 2008.
A few users are experiencing slowness when opening documents or saving. The Save As dialog box would show Not Responding for a few moments before showing up. When trying to open their Personal Folders listed under the Start Menu, it would take awhile to populate and show.
Logged in as Administrator would be quick.
Disabled all antivirus but no help.
Noticed Folder Redirection errors in the Event Log.
Folders are redirected using a GPO using Advanced and having only a certain group of users that have their folders redirected.
After research and testing various things, found that unchecking “Move the contents of My Documents to the new location” fixed the issue.
We have not had a failed server or anything offline as this article indicates but we definitely were getting similar symptoms.
