Folder redirection in GP not updating.

By pwright2 ·

We use folder redirection for grouped desktops. Server 2003 R2 and XP PCs.

This works well, except I've changed a group, created them a new group, updated group policy, created all the folders and permissions.

I've created a brand new test account and this works fine.

However, all the existing users still try and redirect to the old desktop.

I've found that deleting ntuser.dat in the user's profile allows it to redirect properly.

However why is the new GP not updating the user's profile?

The PC's have all had their GP updated to make sure too.

Group Policy is applied in a specific order. local machine, site, domain and OU.

So where you linked the group policy in the order of precedence determines if it's applied as well as if there are other group policies which might override.
