09: How does PolicyPak perform Folder Redirection or OneDrive Known Folder Move (KFM) with PolicyPak Group Policy, PolicyPak MDM or PolicyPak Cloud?

PolicyPak as a product DOESN’T perform Folder Redirection or OneDrive Known Folder Move.

PolicyPak CAN, however, deliver the Group Policy or registry settings required to perform these operations.

These operations are just built into Windows and OneDrive, and THEY do the work… PolicyPak just delivers the SETTINGS.

Folder Redirection and PolicyPak:

For Folder Redirection, use Group Policy Preferences to deliver the following settings that you are interested in.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Name: AppData


Data: %USERPROFILE%\Application Data

Name: Desktop


Data: %USERPROFILE%\Desktop

Name: Personal


Data: %USERPROFILE%\My Documents

Name: My Pictures


Data: %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Pictures

Name: Start Menu


Data: %USERPROFILE%\Start Menu

For OneDrive Known Folder Move (KFM) and PolicyPak

Read this first: then use the OneDrive Group Policy settings to perform the work.

TIP: Full, step by step and expert advice in this area can be found in the MDM book at in the OneDrive chapter.

The latest OneDrive ADMX files are always just installed alongside the OneDrive client.

So, we suggest that on a single, solitary machine, go to  find the download (or reinstall) for Windows 10.

Again: Even if you think you have it, just… re-download and reinstall it, just so I know you're using the latest OneDrive client version.

Then, once done, on a Windows 10 machine, you'll look for the files in %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\BuildNumber\adm (yes, adm and not ADMX for some reason.)

Then you can use then with your Central Store and PolicyPak Admin Templates Manager and/or PolicyPak Cloud.
