Explorer process hanging upon user login - 21H2 roaming profiles

Moved from MS Community Forum


We just re-imaged out machines with Windows 10 21H2 LTSB (build 19044.1645) and after a lot of narrowing down I found out roaming profiles, as defined in folder redirection GPO, is causing the explorer process to hang on login. It doesn't happen every time but probably 1 in 3 logins will end up with a non responsive explorer. In the end windows seems to try and kill the process and the user is left with a black screen until the machine is rebooted. When the roaming profile GP setting is removed there are no login issues.

I know roaming profiles are being phased out but we're not in a position to move away from them just yet - I can't seem to find any info on this error online or if its a known bug with Windows, does anyone have any ideas?

Here is what is captured in the logs
