    Weird Folder Redirection Issue

    Hi Guys,

    I need to change users My Documents (from and old server to a new one)

    My Documents are currently redirected by group policy, If i logon to a computer as a user that has never logged on their before the My Documents are successfully redirected to the new server no problems.

    However, if i log on to a computer as a user that has already logged on previously (IE has a local profile existing on that machine) The documents are NOT redirected - the event viewer says that the redirection was successfully applied and if you look at user shell folders in the registry it points to the new location but if you open My Docs it still points to the old server for some reason

    If i delete the local profile and then log back on they are correctly redirected.

    Any ideas why this might be? or a work around?

    Thanks,

    Viktor

    Try "gpupdate /force" on an account that hasn't updated then logoff and back on.
