Folder redirection very slow


Folder redirection is good and bad, well if everything is working as expected then it's definitely good and sometimes it's bad if it causes some unexpected issues such as very slow login.

So you have a folder redirection working  smoothly over the years, users can always change their password whenever they want it and of course, System Administrator can also change user password anytime whenever they want it or whenever they just felt like changing it (just kidding), or when situations demand it.

If folder redirection suddenly becomes problematic or causes some issue such as slow login, one issue could be that the user changes the password or the Sys Ad change the user password.

One issue I encountered if the folder redirection suddenly becomes slow, if the client or the user has a mapped drive that is set manually and set to persistent, persistent mapped drives uses the Vault Credential Manager to store the password.

If the password is not updated in the vault credential manager, this will cause an issue for the folder redirection to be very slow.

Of course, the solution is to remove or update the password in the vault credential manager.
The error that will be shown if the persistent mapped drive does not match the new password is
system error 2251”.


The error does not relate in any way to the folder redirection but it will point to the solution. If no changes made to the group policy, server settings then the only thing it could go wrong is on the client or user's computer.


Errors unrelated is not really unrelated, it is sometimes part of the solution to a big problem.



Cheers. Till next time.

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.

Copy files with selected file extension using PowerShell and Robocopy:

$extension = ('.pdf', '.jpg', '.txt')
gci d:\WorkFolde…

WMIC get computer name

WMIC get computer model, manufacturer, computer name and  username.
WMIC is a command-line tool and that can generate information about computer model, its manufacturer, its username and other informations depending on the parameters provided.
Why would you need a command line tool if there’s a GUI to check?
If you have 20 or 100 computers, or even more. It’s quite a big task just checking the GUI to check the computer model and username.
If you have remote computers, you need to delegate someone in the remote office or location to check.
Or you can just write a batch file or script to automate the task.

wmic computersystem get "Model","Manufacturer", "Name", "UserName"
