All versions of Cryptshare for Office 365 & Outlook


In most terminal server environments, a roaming profile is used to provide the user specific data on multiple terminal servers. In case of zero profiling a redirection is mandatory to provide the needed data for the add-in to work properly.


Use a Symlink/Symbolic Link to redirect the resource directory. The persistent data is stored in the following folder: C:\Users\*user*\AppData\Roaming\befine Solutions AG To redirect the folder by a Symlink we will use the Windows tool mklink which is provided by default and has not to be installed on your Windows system. To create the link, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Open the Windows command line tool (`cmd`)
  2. Execute the following command:
`mklink /D` `"C:\Users\*user*\AppData\Roaming\befine Solutions AG"` `"\\folder\of\your\choice"`

After the procedure has finished, the data will be stored in the folder of your choice, as soon as you start Outlook.
