    We have approx 20 systems, laptops and desktops - running 10.4.11 and 10.5.8 - that are syncing a local home directory with the user's specified home folder in their AD profile. As a standard, we are syncing their desktop and documents folders. This all seems to be working well, except for the fact that everything in the documents folder syncs, except for their Microsoft User Data info. We have gone so far as to blow out everything in the back up folder and start fresh, but still no Microsoft User Data folder. We have our users on Office 08.

    Has anyone noticed this situation, and if so, have you found a solution to forcing a sync of this folder?

    Are you controlling the Home Sync via OD or AD Schema?

    Have you tried adding a specific rule for synching ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data?

    We are using the the AD Schema, as far as I am aware. Where would you advise creating a rule for syncing that specific folder?
