Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We run a citrix environment with roaming profiles. All servers are 2008R2 and are updated once a month. After updating the servers we receive some complaints from users who loose their customs folder settings.

Why use custom settings you might think. Well we map alot of user profiles to one person. When all these profiles are named 'My documents' they are unable to distinguish them.

Removing the desktop.ini or adding a column named 'file name' fixes the problem for them. However both changes seem to be undone after a Windows Update.

I was hoping to find a friendly way to fix this problem permanently.
