Hi

I use 2016 AD to setup GPO about folder redirection - AppData(Roaming)
to Each user has their own area, using the "Create a folder for each user under the root path" option.

I set to a disk drive, D:\vdi_system_hidden folder

Then I use a user to login to a computer
But I found the start up menu is missing
In D:\vdi_system_hidden\user03\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
It can see some folders here

Why my start up menu is missing?

    Hi,
    I can't do a test in my lab since it was broken until Friday,
    Once I finished my test, I will update here!
    If possible, please tell more details about how you set the policy.

    The following case for your reference:

    Hi,
    Thanks for your time and patience.
    I did a test in my lab.

    It is the same as yours. The right part is the screenshot of entries in my lab, the left part is yours.
    I though the Startup menu is not missing under the program folder.
    Feel free to let me know If i misunderstand you.

    Best Regards,
