  1. GPO to change the default path of the Work Folder

    Today, when we configure the Work Folders by GPO we dont have a way to change the default location/path of the work folder.
    It defaults to %USERPROFILE%\Work Folders.
    This is totally a show stopper for me cause we redirect user files to another drive and dont want user files in the system drive. Think this is pretty standard on enterprises. We have a way to redirect almost everything in Windows. But dont have a way redirect Work Folders...

  4. Work Folders Group Policy

    Work Folders has the scheduled task Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\Work Folders\Work Folders Maintenance Work. I need to set this task to run hourly via task scheduler for all users. I was looking for a way to do this via group policy. I know there is a tasks option under GP preferences, but I can not find a way to incorporate this built in task to the GPO. It would be nice to have an admx template or something to be able to push a setting to all computers to run this task on a set schedule instead of just on logon.

  5. Work Folders Client side awareness of Quota and FSRM

    Currently if we enable quota for Work Folders the client side UI will still all available space on the server.
    It would be good if the client is aware of the quota and can display space available based on quota value and perhaps even UI warning/information based on space available.

    If FSRM have file screening available and you add a file that is not allowed then you will only see a access denied when syncing.
    It would be good if the client could understand the settings and inform the user when file is added or at least better information from…

  6. Work Folders Hardening

    Currently Work Folders allows us to Encrypt data on the client device. This is a nice feature, the data within the Work Folder on the client device is encrypted. However, at any point in time, a user can Right Click their Work folder and "Remove Enterprise Control" at which point data is unencrypted. Also, at any point in time a user can open the properties of a file and choose to remove encryption. We do not want users to be able to remove encryption, if we chose to encrypt the contents of the work folders it should remain encrypted. This…

  7. Multi-Tenancy for Service Providers

    Work Folders really provides a great enterprise like scalability at the same time addressing requirements from any customer segments. Many service providers are interested in developing solutions around WorkFolders where they can serve multiple tenants from their Datacenters. However, more guidance is required on how to manage multi-tenancy, challenges, sync issues in low bandwidth scenarios, and any other guidance will be extremely helpful. With storage costs declining, Hosters and Service Providers are eager to provide these services to customers thereby reducing capital expenses for their customers

  10. Separate Front-End to Back-End

    In this moment the role is in the same server and this is not "awesome" for security, in particular when the work folders use the same production file server.

    another scenario is when there's only one Public IP.

    The feedback is have two roles: front-end and back-end to separate publishing from sourcing.

  12. Add selective sync in Work Folders [Separated Idea]

    Today, Work Folders client will sync the entire dataset on the client. Some devices don't have too much storage space. A selective sync feature for Windows platform (equal to the one on iOS) would be great, which only downloads the namespaces, and download data when user selects it.

  13. Ability to view/access Work Folders files on the server through web browser [Separated Idea]

    Possibility to view / download "Read only" files from web browser on any computer without establishing a Work Folders partnership that downloads the files to the computer. This would also be great for non-domain joined Windows 7 computers.
