What is the purpose of the FullArmor\Fazam\GP Repository Servers\%server%\Policies and the local Sysvol directories?

To edit GPOs offline, NetIQ Group Policy Administrator (GPA) has integrated Microsoft GPEdit into the Repository Console. This ensures that users do not have to update the Repository console whenever Microsoft changes or enhances the GPO editor. The Repository consoles will work out of the box on Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows .NET.
To avoid confusion with live GPOs, GPEdit creates its temporary working directories under
FullArmor\Fazam\GP Repository Servers\%server%\Policies and the local
Sysvol. The check-out operation creates these temporary directories. The check-in operation loads the GPO data into the Repository SQL database and deletes the temporary directories in AD and on the local computer. Every domain managed through the Repository requires these directories for users to perform GPO Check out and Check In.
