roaming profile & folder redirection

I can't seem to find a consensus on what the differences are between the two. Roaming Profiles, Folder redirection or... both is one example. The top answer doesn't answer the question as to what data isn't shared if not using roaming profiles.

  • What is the difference between roaming profile and folder redirection?

  • What data "roams" with roaming profiles that doesn't roam with folder redirection?

  • Why is it a bad idea to redirect AppData? What are the consequences of not redirecting this folder should a user log onto the domain with a different machine?

Thanks for any insight.
