A Group Policy “Documents” setting is localized incorrectly as “Recently used files” on a computer that is running a Japanese version of Windows Server 2008 or of Windows Vista

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running a Japanese version of Windows Server 2008 or of Windows Vista. Or, you have the Japanese language pack installed on a computer that is running an English version of Windows Server 2008 or of Windows Vista.
  • On this computer, you use the Group Policy Management Editor to edit a Group Policy object.

In this scenario, the following Group Policy setting is localized incorrectly:

User Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Folder Redirection\Documents

Specifically, “Documents” is localized as “?????????.” This localized phrase means “Recently used files.”
